Remarkable sculptor Zheng Lu is the artist behind these breath-taking steel sculptures. Each of these impressive artworks, upon closer inspection, appear to be covered in Chinese characters. Lu picked out poems and exerts from various Chinese texts and plastered them on these stunning sculptures.

Lu's steel sculptures differ greatly in terms of content, ranging from circus elephants to splashing bodies of water. These intricate artworks were cleverly covered with texts and poems that reflect the nature of the pieces themselves. For example, Lu's splashing water sculpture has been plastered with lines from a poem called 'Playing with Water.'

Zheng Lu's impressive sculptures come across as celebrations of Chinese art and literature. They beautifully combine literary works and detailed sculptures in a way that's really moving. These eye-catching artworks illustrate lovely poems and interesting texts with steel.
