【大美广东】The dragon head made by Zhang Weichao appeared in the opening ceremony of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics!
Zhang Weichao, known as the “Dragon Boat Youth”, carved impressive-looking dragon heads that were selected by Zhang Yimou’s team and displayed in the “Grain in Ear” of the 24 Solar Terms countdown in the opening ceremony of Beijing 2022. Since then, Zhang Weichao has become famous, but he does not compromise on quality to get more orders for his unique creations. The creation of a dragon head requires more than ten complex procedures, including material selection, design, carving, polishing, and painting. Before designing each dragon head, he conducts research on cultural symbols and holds meetings with residents to discuss the project, and starts creating a dragon head only when everything is planned out. Therefore, Zhang Weichao’s dragon heads are known for their uniqueness and personality, and each one has its distinctive features. #artandculture
