Originally found on Colossal we had to post this tree carving. That is one big tree and a massive continuous carving.
After nearly four years of work , Zheng Chunhui’s stunning wood sculpture was awarded Guinness World Record for “worlds longest wooden sculpture” in Fujian Province.
The sculpture showcases a three-dimensional vivid scene of strong, structured, exquisite workmanship and subtle techniques.

Montreal-based artist Maskull Lasserre on Colossal – don’t miss it!
When the remnants of life are imposed on an object, and that’s true especially with the carving work that I do, it infers a past history or a previous life that had been lived, so again where people see my work as macabre, I often see it as hopeful, as the remnants of a life. Despite the fact that the life has ended, at least that life had a beginning and middle as well, so often by imparting these bodily elements to inanimate objects it reclaims or reanimates them in a virtual way.
