THE AMAZING BEAST
Chinese Architect Dengding Rui Yao needed three years and the help from twenty people to complete The Oriental Lion. It is a 47.5 feet long and 16.5 feet high sculpture, carved from a giant redwood tree trunk. This giant roaring lion is now residing in a in a Central Chinese city square, but it had quite a journey. It was completed in Myanmar in 2015 and was later transported some 3000 miles north to Wuhan’s Fortune Plaza Times Square. In Chinese culture, lions are a symbol of protection, and I bet that anyone who sees this magnificent structure in person, could not agree more.
