The Department of Phenomenal Pencil Art is proud to introduce its newest member, Taiwan-based artist Chien Chu Lee, who often makes use of entire pencils to create incredibly detailed sculptures, including miniature replicas of real bridges. Lee uses colored pencils instead of graphite when the bridge he’s currently recreating has a distinctive color. He carves other awesome architectural wonders in this full-pencil style as well, such as the Great Wall of China:
The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, it winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometers) from east to west of China.
With a history of more than 2,000 years, some of the sections are now in ruins or have disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance.
The Great Wall of China, China - The longest fortification ever built. The Great Wall has been called the Ten-Thousand-Li-Long Wall (万里长城: Wan Li Changcheng) for centuries. One li is half a kilometer, so 10,000 li is the equivalent of 5,000 km (3,100 miles). (outstandingplaces.com)
