Being an artist does not have limits. Creativity is something that comes from within and when one is inspired, the natural juices of art transpires naturally. More than gifted hands, we believe that wonderful masterpieces are products of enthusiastic hearts and resonating souls. Albert Einstein once said, “True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.” I think this explains how artist Zheng Chunhui was able to create this beautiful work of art from an old tree trunk. We were surprised to know that a person can possess such intricate talent!

This single tree trunk may look plain and simple from afar.

The masterpiece is a wood-carved representation of the “Along The River During The Quinming Festival,” originally painted by Zhang Zeduan during the Song Dynasty.
