Then Zheng Chunhui, a famous wood carver, spent over four years creating this masterpiece.
The carving is based on the famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Qingming Festival.” The original artwork was created over 1,000 years ago.
The piece won the Guinness World Record for the longest wooden carving and measures over 40ft (specifically, it is 12.286 meters long, is 3.075 meters tall at it highest point, and is also 2.401 meters wide).
The intricate carvings of daily life in ancient China are so detailed and perfect, they could drop your jaw.
It’s no surprise that this incredible work of art is drawing so much attention. It’s amazing, but not just because it’s so big, but also because it’s so incredibly detailed.
That was 8,760 hours well spent. Share this awesome work with others.
