9:02 AM

From a first look at the gigantic tree trunk you wouldn’t think much of it, but as you take a closer look your jaw will hit the floor. Artist Zheng Chunhui has created a piece called “Along The River During The Quinming Festival” and it is absolutely stunning. Take a closer look at the picture below.

Check out this 40-foot long tree trunk.

Are you serious?

This beautifully carved tree trunk was masterfully carved with precision and skill. It has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s longest wood carving.

The sculpture has over 550 hand carved people as well as all of the buildings and foliage.

The sculpture is a replica of a Chinese painting called “Along The River During The Quinming Festival” created by artist Zhang Zeduan during the Song Dynasty.

Created by Zheng Chunhui this mind-blowing piece of art took over four years to complete.
