        This is a great work of art.                                     
      It looks like it’s all old and rotting with all that funny texture going on.  Apparently this isn’t just a gigantic tree trunk lying around in a gallery. Artist Zheng Chunhui has created a piece called “Along The River During The Quinming Festival” and it seems as though he was on a mission to blow everyone’s mind. Take a look at the photos below and try to imagine the incredible skill and  dedication required to create something like this.          
                                                               
                     
                      Nice tree, 40-feet long.  Pretty impressive!  Look closer.                                  This is a a wooded carved sculpture. Made with a single tree trunk, it has been recognized as the world’s longest wood carving by the Guinness Book of World Records.            The sculpture contains over 550 individually carved people, not to mention all the buildings and foliage.            It’s a replica of the famous Chinese painting “Along The River During The Quinming Festival” created by artist Zhang Zeduan during the Song Dynasty.            This mind-blowing artwork was created by Zheng Chunhui and took four years to complete.             Now THAT’S a masterpiece!
