——————–
For 250NT, we’ll be able to see this 15-hectare place built to show the works of æœ±éŠ˜ (Juming), an international sculptor.

朱銘 (Juming) was trained as a woodcarver but later developed his skill and ventured into bronze, styrofoam, ceramics & stainless steel.  All we can see in æœ±éŠ˜ç¾Žè¡“館 (Juming Museum).

The museum opened July 2004 together with the Taiwan Astronomical museum wherein people stayed at the Taichi square to gaze at the stars.  Apparently, Juming’s Taichi series is the most popular from all his works.

Let me show you what we saw in the museum.  I’ll divide it via collection/series:

  • 十年曲藏 (10 Years Collection) – Various Artists

There is one piece that I find interesting.  They have to put electric fan in front of it for us to see the full effect.  Here’s a video:

  • Taichi Series - æœ±éŠ˜ (Juming) is well-known for this.  It was his mentor Mr. Yang who influenced him to start learning Taichi.  His learnings can be seen through his works as shown below.  I enjoyed looking at the different pieces, they even have Tai Chi shirts & other stuff at the museum souvenir shop.
