The masterful skills of this Changsha street clay sculptor wow the Internet Posted on October 15, 2019
"When nothing goes right, go left."

51-year old Yan Junhai hails from Changsha in Central China. He is a 5th generation clay sculptor and plies his trade in the streets of his town. 

A recent video of his master skills has gone viral and gotten the Internet talk. And if you watch the video, you will understand why. 

His skills are unparalleled (at least as far as we know), as he sculpts and moulds pieces of clay into the live-like image or form of his customers who sit for his work. The results are stunning, and has wowed the Internet since it was posted on a Chinese platform.

The native of the city in Hunan Province uses nothing more than his bare hands and a small sculpting instrument.

His master skills are the result of practice since he was 8-years old. While little else is known about him, reports have put his current age in the 40s, or early 50s.

This is not the first time that Mr Yan, as we should address him, is in the spotlight, however. Last year, he made the headlines when he created the first clay replica of the football world cup trophy. 

Below is that video of his amazing feat, which he apparently performs multiple times on a daily basis. Clearly, he is a very gifted artist!

Amazing.
