TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Yunlin County sculptor, Tang Wen-jen (唐偉仁), has captured
the hearts of locals with his lifelike canine busts made from newspaper.
Inspired by his passion for raising dogs and as a nod to the figurehead of the coming Lunar Year, Tang has created several auspicious sculptures of different dog breeds including Doberman, Dachshund, Shiba Inu, Akita, and the American bulldog, said NTDTV.
Most startling to his neighbors was a full-size, lifelike reproduction of Little Red (小紅), his former pet Dachshund who passed away two years ago. The sculpture was as if Little Red had been reincarnated, according to Liberty Times. [FULL STORY]
