Giant Lion Carved from Single Tree Trunk Took 20 People 3 Years to Complete
By Jessica Stewart on May 10, 2017



Taking 20 people more than 3 years, a single tree trunk has been carved into a giant lion titled Oriental Lion. Sculptor Dengding Rui Yao led the team in carving out the enormous redwood trunk, which is now located in Fortune Plaza Times Square in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei Province.

The artists worked on the mammoth sculpture in Myanmar before it traveled a little over 3,000 miles in December 2015 to China. Measuring in at 47.5 feet long, 16.5 feet high, and 13 feet wide, the giant lion is the world's largest redwood sculpture according to Guinness World Records.

Oriental Lion‘s head, paws, and tail have been sculpted into a smooth finish, with the torso maintaining the trunk's rough texture. It's unknown if the wood was sourced from China, but we certainly hope it was a tree that was sick or dying rather than being chopped down for the project. If it did come from China, it's most likely a Metasequoia, a fast growing tree found in the Hubei Province.
