A nine-year-old boy who draws his dream castles in the tiniest detail around the basic shape of everyday items like aubergines or an ear of corn has become an online sensation.
The boy, who has not been named, has attracted the attention of the netizens with these videos recorded in the city of Dali, in the Chinese province of Yunnan.
In one piece of footage, the child can be seen drawing a whole dream castle on white paper inside the outline of an aubergine which is put next to the paper as his creation takes shape.
The astounding drawing is then built up with numerous features in the fantasy castle drawn to the tiniest detail.
A second video shows the boy drawing again on a piece of paper, in the shape of an ear of corn.
The incredible drawing is also filled with tiny details which make it look like a towering castle.
Netizens were impressed by the boy’s skills after the videos were posted on Douyin, which is what TikTok is called in China.
User ‘Zhang Zhang cat’ said: “There are really few architectural talents in our country, and we should cultivate them in this direction.”
While ‘do not eat parsley’ wrote: “There is a world in his heart.”
And ‘Rzz” commented: ” Hard work pales when compared to talent.”
