pedobearapproved: I'd buy that and put it in my master sh***er. Give me something to look at while I go.
Sid_6.7: This was the detail that really got me:[i.dailymail.co.uk image 850x563]Those rigging lines? Carved in wood with the equal thickness? Holy sh*t!Everything else is amazing, but that is simply masterful.
Shrink: Aren't you supposed to see a physician if you have wood for more than 4 years?
Sid_6.7: Holy sh*t!

khyberkitsune: I actually have a lacquered wood carving of part of this hanging in my living room. It was made about 100 or so years ago.Of the several pieces of Asian art I own, that one is my favorite.[img.fark.net image 850x637]
tuxytux: anyone else thought the headline meant something naughtier?
Rik01: I've seen this type of work before, but nothing as extensive, and am always impressed by the amount of detail that goes into carving the tiny figures, landscapes, homes and vehicles.It's a fascinating art form requiring a major skill and patience. I've never seen anything similar done by Americans or Europeans. Just the Chinese. (Well, yeah, similar but never as in excruciating detail.)Check out The Queens Doll House in Great Britain -- though it has no people or animals and was done by an assortment of craftsmen over the ages.
AbiNormal: The amount of carving they did in even ordinary items is amazing.
