12 Feet World's Largest Paintbrush

Good morning everyone. It is the first day of Chinese New Year. Are you in jolly good mood to enjoy this special occasion? Some of you might be preparing to go house-visiting already right? Make sure you are wearing clothes or pants with lots (LOTS) of pockets. Why? because you'll be getting a lot Ang Pow~mah! :p Anyway this morning while waiting for your other family members, I wanna share with you guys something that we, Chinese are familiar with-calligraphy. But our focus this morning will be on the tool that is used. Apparently a Chinese artist, He Wenjun (who has nothing better to do), created the world's largest paintbrush. For what?

All for the sake of the record...

Well, for the record of course. Guiness Book of World Records has confirmed that Wenjun's creation is now the largest in the world. Do you know that the tails of 300 horses were needed to construct this giant paintbrush? Goodness, 300 horses had to be killed for this? This paintbrush weighs more than 50KG and is about 3.6 meters long! Awesome stats right? And the most amazing part is it took Wenjun 1 year to build this over-sized paintbrush.

Wow...he looked very good...


More amazingly, it took him another year to master this enormous paintbrush (WHAT???). So let's see how his one year of hard work and training work out to be...here we go...

It worked out to be a giant..."illegible" snake...

That's all for now folks. Enjoy your first day of Chinese New Year ok. May you and your family have a wonderful Chinese New Year. Be careful while driving ok. Take care now. :)
