A wood carving craftsman for nearly four decades, Zheng Chunhui's passion for the art continues to grow stronger.
Recently, Zheng has been busy with a new creation — a wood carving 100 meters long and 2.6 meters high, depicting the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal.
The canal, which starts in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, and ends in Beijing, is one of three big projects of ancient China. The other two are the Great Wall and the karez well system in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.
