Painting “Along the River During the QingMing Festival” is one of the most popular creations in China. And now it has been reacreated by Zheng Chunhui, a Chinese sculptor on a 12-meter long wooden log. After 4 years of unstoppable carving you can now see the incredible result.

It is a genius idea to recreate a painting into a sculpture, I think. It’s much more fascinating when you watch it in 3D. In the carving by Chunhui you can see economic classes of China represented and the way they celebrate this festival. Most of the scenes of the painting are carved unbelievably detailed and accurate. His carving measures over 12 meters long and has been confirmed by Guinness as the world’s longest one-piece wood carving. It doesn’t surprise why did it take 4 years to make such a masterpice.

Do you know without what Zheng Chunhui wouldn’t have done it? It’s endless patience and tenacity. Sometimes it’s all we need to expose our abilities.
