Giant Lion Carved from Single Tree Trunk Took 20 People 3 Years to Complete



A fantastic new attraction at the Fortune Plaza Times Square in Wuhan, China’s capital Hubei Province is named as one of the city’s beautiful landmarks, the Oriental Lion. The giant lion was carved by famous sculptor Dengding Rui Yao and his team for three years in Myanmar. After completion, it was then transported to China last December 2015. The Oriental Lion is 14.5m long 4m wide and 5m high. It now holds the Guinness Record as the world’s largest wood sculpture.

Since ancient times, the lion has been auspicious in China as a symbol of power and grandeur. They are also believed to ward off evil spirits, which is why imposing statues of lions can be seen at the gates of imperial palaces, official residences, temples and tombs. So it’s no surprise that the people of Wuhan showed up in large number to welcome the arrival of this majestic artwork in their home city. – source
