Rice Paper Art

Looking a bit like a plane, maybe a boat but actually constructed from over 8,000 sheets of rice paper this mammoth structure is the work of the Chinese Artist Zhu Jinshi.

He created the 12-meter long structure for Art13 in London and says its a way to signify his own passage from East to West and the passage that people take into the afterlife.

On top of 8,000 delicate pieces of rice paper the structure is supported by 800 bamboo sticks.

It took a specialist team from Hong Kong three days to assemble the structure which is aptly titled boat.
