Longest continuous wooden sculpture in the world took four years to carve

This artist from China dedicated four years carving out the longest continuous wooden sculpture in the world. How’s that for dedication? Zheng Chunhui, the man behind the sculpture, recently unveiled his masterpiece in Fujian. It measures 40 feet long and involves intricate and precisely detailed 3D landscapes. It’s based on a painting called ‘Along the river during the Qingming Festival’, which is a traditional Chinese festival that falls on the 104th day after the winter solstice.
