A monumental yet fragile looking sculpture caught my eye the other day, while researching paper sculptures -"Boat" by Chinese artist Zhu Jinshi.

Made out of the Xuan Paper, a material used in China since ancient times and known for its softness, strength & durability, the "Boat" embodies the artist's idea to "infinitely extend every moment".

“While time only moves forward, the Boat can sail in any direction. The Boat's cultural resonance is constructed of time itself, continuously ebbing and flowing through our imagination.” Zhu Jinshi
