(ECNS) -- Huang Hongji, who lives in Changchun, Jilin Province, has been devoted to woodcarving for about 10 years and has created over 1,000 wooden animals.
Rabbits, cats, gorillas, dinosaurs and other wooden animals in his studio are amazingly lifelike.
Huang said each wooden animal embodies his childhood dream.
He said many preparations are needed, including drawing designs and selecting timber.
To vivify the animals, careful observation is essential.
He once spent five days carving the giant gorilla King Kong, his favorite work.
He has finished over 100 wooden birds so far and plans to carve others animals later.
He dreams of creating a wooden animal kingdom.
