(ECNS) -- A willow root sculpture measuring 15.88 meters long, 6.3 meters wide and 3 meters high is on display at Taohuayuan Scenic Area in Changde, Hunan Province.

The root carving weighs 50 tons along with its base.

The idea of this sculpture comes from "A Tale of the Fountain of the Peach Blossom Spring" of Tao Yuanming, a ancient Chinese poet of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (317-420).

According to the visit route of a Wuling fisherman, the sculpture depicts the harmony between humans and nature within a peach blossom setting, later regarded as Shangri-la.
