When you glance at this old felled tree from a distance and think it’s just a rotting log. After all it’s winter and when there are downed trees they are always rotting away in sunken piles of leaves and dirt. But have a closer look, because what your going to see will surprise you.
The carving covers all 12 feet of the tree and has been acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest tree carving in the world.
Covering a total area of 39 feet, there are more than 550 individually carved figures present on the piece.
It is inspired by a famous Chinese painting of the same name by Zhang Zeduan of the Song Dynasty. It depicts the festivities that take place during this springtime festival.
This amazing work of art is a testimony not just to China’s great traditions, but to the unique art forms practiced for centuries within the country. What a sight to behold.
