The Finest Details Of Chinese Craftsmanship

The proud tradition of Chinese craftsmanship continues on in the hands of Wang Zhenhua, just in a slightly smaller form.

 

 

He has created a scale replica of the Hall of Prayer in Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, winning the Golden Prize in the Smart Artisan Cup Competition in the 2016 Intangible World Crafts Expo & Cultural Heritage Expo.

 

 

Every last door and window is functional, and even the carvings atop them are faithfully replicated. It took him five years to make, but what started with Emperor Jiajing has found a new life in the hands of Wang.
