4 years long amazing sculpture


China has a long tradition of wooden sculptures. For centuries they are  transforming pieces of raw wood into works of inspiring art, but none as impressive as the sheer creation of Zheng Chunhui. This talented Chinese artist spent the last four years meticulously carving a detailed replica of a famous traditional Chinese painting called ” Along the River during the Qingming Festival ” in the trunk of a little over 12 feet long tree turning it into an amazing sculpture.
