Giant Log Townscape


The Chinese artist of the name Zheng Chunhui has spent the better part of 4 years carving this replica of the Chinese painting by the name of Along the River during the Qingming Festival.

Here’s the finished product:

Finished Wood

It’s very hard to get an idea of the scale of this project from the above photo, which is why this next photo is gonna go in.  It has people standing next to it for scale:

The entire sculpture is over 40 feet long, 10 feet tall, and almost 7 feet wide.  Zheng Chunhui received an entry into the Guinness Book of World records for this piece.  It’s considered the longest wood carving.  I would also like to add that it’s ridiculously detailed.  And 3 Dimensional.  This entire thing is crazy.

Here’s some detail of what I am guessing is the Bridget Scene:

And here’s the corresponding scene in the original scroll {wiki}:

There’s even a video of it if you really want to get into it.  Except the video looks like it’s just showing the same above, but to music.  Oh well.
