A Chinese woman has been ordered to remove a giant portrait of her crush that she painted on a famous cliff in eastern China.
The woman, from Taizhou in Zhejiang province, had scaled the 218-metre-tall Fanzheng Rock on the scenic Shenxianju Mountain in Xianju county to paint the portrait, Qianjiang Evening News reported.
The portrait, which measured some seven metres, was of the avid rock climber’s crush, a fellow climber, according to the report.
The 37-year-old woman had worked on the portrait every weekend for the past two months, spending several hours each time scaling the cliff and painting while dangling from a rope, the report said.
She often even spent the night on the cliff, according to the report.
Scenery management authorities said the woman was very cooperative in their investigation into the matter and had promised to remove the painting soon.
