Wicked Commentary

To step away from the political news for just a bit, this following story is one of a great artist, just for fun and your pleasure.

When you first look at this tree trunk it looks like nothing more than a rotten trunk. But, at closer inspection there is much more than you may think.

Giant tree trunk 1OK, so right here it doesn’t look like anything, but wait there is more than meets the eye.

Just look at all those carvings inside the trunk! Whoever did this is one heck of an artist.

This trunk has been recognized as the longest wood carving by the Guinness Book of World Records.

This carving has over 550 people not to mention the foliage and buildings.

It’s a replica of the famous Chinese paining, “Along the River During the Quinming Festival”, created by the artist Zhang Zeduan during the Song Dynasty.

This artwork was created by Zeng Chunhui and took 4 years to complete.
