Amazing Tree Trunk

Zheng Chunhui, a famous Chinese wood carver, spent over four years creating this masterpiece.

That’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece.

He chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece.

The carving is based on the famous Chinese painting

at it highest point, and is also 2.401 meters wide)

    A huge tree branch fell down on our block during the night . . . unfortunately, I think it will only become firewood 😦 Thanks for sharing that; it’s wonderful.

      Yep I can say that any trees that fall down here are also destined for firewood. I wouldn’t have the patience or the ability to be able to do what he did. 🙂
