The Mummies of Venzone (Italy)
For hundreds of years, a mystery surrounded the cathedral of Venzone, a small city in the province of Udine, Italy. Instead of decomposing normally, bodies buried in the tombs beneath the cathedral were perfectly preserved and still recognizable decades later, a fact which led the townspeople to periodically retrieve and commune with their dead loved ones. In modern times, scientists finally traced the source of this wonder to Hypha tombicina, a microscopic, parasitic fungus that rapidly dehydrates the bodies before decomposition can even begin.
World’s Longest Wooden Sculpture
Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui recently unveiled this exceptionally large and intricately carved wooden sculpture that measures some 40 feet (12.286 meters) long, 10 feet (3.075 meters) high and almost 8 feet (2.401 meters) wide. Four years in the making, the tree carving is based on a famous painting called Along the River During the Qingming Festival, which is a historical holiday reserved to celebrate past ancestors that falls on the 104th day after the winter solstice. The Guinness World Records group arrived in November in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, where the piece is currently on display, to declare it “the world’s longest wooden sculpture”.
