Olive Pit Sculpture by Chen Tsu-chang

This incredible olive pit sculpture was created in 1737. Its only 1.34 inches in length and 0.63 inches tall. The perfectly carved Olive-Stone Boat was crafted by Ch’en Tsu-chang. On the tiny boat eight figures can be seen, each with unique expressions along with the chairs and dishes in the interior. Amazingly, the windows are also moveable.
