A tourist takes photos of the "Selfie Panda" sculpture at Yangtianwo square in Dujiangyan, southwest China's Sichuan Province, April 7, 2021. A creation of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, the sculpture is 26.5m by 11m by 12m in dimension, featuring a selfie-taking giant panda lying on its back. Weighing 130 tonnes, the work takes shape with the help of three million lacquer-painted stainless steel rods. "Selfie Panda" is inspired by a real giant panda that went astray in downtown Dujiangyan in 2005. It soon became a popular photogenic spot following its recent public debut. (Xinhua/Wang Xi)
