Looking at the detail and precision of the carving, I can only wonder what Zheng’s thoughts were when he
finally finished. Thank you for sharing.

The scroll that was his “blueprint” is a National Treasure in China. To take it from 2 dimensional to three is just as amazing as the original scroll itself. BTW, does anyone know what tools he used? Hand or power or combination? There is a screen behind the work that probably is a video of the Zheng at work, but it’s too small to see clearly.
