A root carving of a Tibetan Mastiff made its debut in Hengshui City of central China’s Hebei Province recently. The root carving is 2 meters high, 4 meters long and weighs 3 tons.
The root carving is made of the root of Nanmu, a kind of superior durable softwood that was frequently used for boat building, architectural woodworking and wood art in China.
Moreover, the body and the other parts of the Tibetan Mastiff are naturally formed except its head and forelimbs.
