This awesomely large and intricate wooden sculpture is the work of Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui. Carved on a 40-foot-long tree trunk over the course of 4 years, this monumental work of art was recently recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s longest continuous wooden sculpture.
Zheng Chunhui’s sculpture is based on a famous Chinese painting called Along the River During the Qingming Festival. The Qingming Festival is, “a historical holiday reserved to celebrate past ancestors that falls on the 104th day after the winter solstice.

Here’s an awesomely rare sight captured by photographer Rohan Thomson for The Canberra Times: A wild albino kangaroo was recently spotted hopping about in the bushland outside of Canberra, Australia’s capital city. Seeing such an animal in the wild is extraordinarily rare both because of the uncommonness of albinism and because such animals are easy prey for predators and thus usually die at a young age.
The kangaroo, an eastern grey, is believed to be two years old. Experts said this is old for an albino kangaroo, which stands out against the Australian bushland and therefore attracts more predators such as wild foxes and dogs. Albinos are also apparently more susceptible to skin cancer and sunburn and are more likely to have sight and hearing difficulties.
“Grey kangaroos are grey for a reason — they blend in with the rest of the environment,” a parks ranger, Brett McNamara, told The Canberra Times.
However, Mr McNamara said the albino’s closeness to its family may have helped to protect it. Rangers have not been able to get close enough to the kangaroo to definitely determine its gender but believe it is female and have nicknamed it Renee.
