Chinese sculptor Zheng Chunhui is clearly a man of great patience. After all, who else would spend four years working on one single wooden sculpture? And yes, you did read that right — four years. The sculpture is a recreation of the famous Chinese painting Along the River During the Qingming Festival and was done on an incredibly massive scale. It was completed in time to coincide with a national holiday in celebration of the ancestors. When taking into account the 12.286 meters long, 3.075 meters high, and 2.401 meters wide behemoth’s incredible detail, it becomes more and more clear why it took such a long time to craft. It was also, of course, a record setter. You are looking at what is now the Guinness World Record Holder for Largest Wooden Sculpture. I’m not sure who exactly they were competing with for this title, but I send my congratulations nonetheless.
