Chinese Sculptor Spends 4 Years Creating World’s Longest Wooden 
SculptureChinese artist Zheng Chunhui’s incredible 12.2-meter-long (over 
40 ft) wooden carving, which has entered the Guinness Book of World 
Records as the longest continuous wooden carving in the world, is a 
testament to human craftsmanship, creativity and patience. Chunhui’s 
work was inspired by “Along the River During the Qinming Festival,” a 
long Chinese scroll painting from more than 1,000 years ago depicting 
the activities of both rich and poor during the Qinming festival. It 
took Chunhui four years to complete the incredible masterpiece, which is 
carved from a single tree trunk and features hundreds of people, 
animals, plants and buildings re-created in painstaking detail.
