Zhou Chengwen, 65, makes final touches to his sculpture “Last Forever” on October 16, 2018 in Southwest China’s Chongqing. An image of the Great Wall forms the work’s main body.

It took Zhou and two others three months to complete the sculpture.

Zhou is the inheritor of wood-carving as a regional intangible cultural heritage in Chongqing.

He hopes to revive the Great Wall in a wood sculpture.

The ebony wood tree is six meters long and believed to be 1,000 years old. (Photos: chinanews.com)
