One major source of unusual and offbeat stories for us has been the land of China. From 12-meter tall Bumblebee to a wooden electric car, once in a while, China offers us a cool and entertaining story that we have to share it with you. Today also, we are bringing you an interesting story. The Fortune Plaza Times Square in Wuhan, Hubei Province has become the center stage these days as the world’s largest redwood sculpture has been installed there. Created by Dengding Rui Yao, a well-known sculptor, the huge lion sculpture is carved from a single redwood tree trunk.
Measuring 14.5 meters in length, 5 meters in height and 4 meters in width, the lion sculpture has became city’s new landmark and is attracting lots of crowd. Dengding Rui Yao worked with a team of 20 sculptors to complete the piece. It was built over a period of three years in Myanmar and was transported more than 5,000 kilometers from there to China last month. One can imagine how difficult it would have to been to transport such a massive piece safely over such a long journey.
The midsection of the sculpture exhibits the original texture of the redwood tree while the front and the rear section are smoothened up to offer a polished look. This masterpiece in Hubei Province, China is now also the Guinness World Record holder for the largest redwood sculpture.
