Longest Continuous Wooden Sculpture In The World

Traditional wooden sculptures can often be impressive, the determination to turn a single piece of wood in to art is often inspiring however Zheng Chunhui has taken this art form to a new level.  Zheng Chunhui has spent four years transforming a 12 foot long tree trunk into a detailed replica of  famous traditional Chinese painting called ” Along the River during the Qingming Festival ”

There are over 500 individually carved people within this stunning sculpture.  The detail is overwhelming and you often find yourself wondering if you are still looking at a sculpture of an extremely detailed piece of art.

Just look at this bustling street, every umbrella has a unique pattern to it, the roofs also look so realistic.  I adore how the rings of the wood are so gorgeously highlighted in the roof at the bottom of the above picture.
