People have been carving wood since ancient times.
It is also one of the oldest crafts in the world.
However, today wood carving has moved to a much higher level. It’s actually art.
Wood carving requires creativity and skill, but also the confidence of the artist.
Wood carvings were once used to celebrate a nation’s culture.
With this knowledge, the Chinese sculptors decided on an incredible work. They carved a really big lion out of a single tree trunk.
Dengding Rui Yao along with nineteen other people managed to make this magnificent work of art in three years.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, this is the world’s largest redwood sculpture.
The proportions of this sculpture are really impressive. It is a 16.5 feet tall, 13 feet wide and 47.5 feet long sculpture. It is called the Oriental Lion.
