Tree Trunk Carving

What a man did with this tree trunk will blow your mind.
One tree, one man and 4 years of work plus an indescribable amount of talent:
That's what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese 
wood carver chopped down a single tree and worked tirelessly on it for over 4 years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see the final product. It all started with a simple tree trunk.
The carving is based on the famous Chinese painting:
"Along the river during the QingMing festival."
The original painting work was created
more than 1,000 years ago.
Then Zheng Chunhui, a famous wood carver,
spent over 4 years to create this masterpiece.
The piece won the Guinness World of Records for the longest wood carving, measuring more than 40ft long, (specifically it's 12.286meters long, 3.075meters tall at its highest point and is 2.401meters wide.)
The intricate carving of daily life in ancient China
are so detailed and perfect, they could drop your jaw.
It's no surprise that this incredible work of art is drawing so much attention. It's amazing but not just because it is so big, but also because it's so incredibly detailed. That was 8,760 hours of hard work well spent.

Many thanks to Alex Chin for sharing.
