Squeezed a few days to go to Taipei. It turned out that my primary activity was to visit museums. We totally visited 3 different museums and some traditional tourist points.

The first place we went was the National History Museum. We went there for an exhibition named Petit Louvre which they showed mini-sized paintings and sculptures of Musee du Louvre

Previously it had the wording 大中至正 and it was replaced to Freedom Square a few years ago. You can still see the dents of the old wording around the word 自

The most famous piece of rock is called "the Queen's head". In fact it really depends on the angle you view it. The first one is not really like a "head" at all. The second one is much better....

We went to there because we will visit a famous private museum in Taiwan, Juming Museum. JuMing (朱銘) is a famous Taiwan Sculptor. If you went to Exchanger Square in Hong Kong, there was a sculpture of a man playing Tai-chi. That was one of the Ju Ming's work. You will see it later in this post.

His museum there was huge and full of his sculpture work. Even a little pond shows his talent. He made a zip around the pond as the lotus there will change according to the season. It gives us a feel that whenever you open / close the zip, it will show you a different picture in different season.
