Taipei Trip again (Dec 2012)
« on: 25 December 2012, 22:18:57 »
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

These were just the duplication of the original so we can touch the exhibits. Here are the 3 must see items ...... Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and the Victory God sculpture....

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

Morning of the second day we went to a traditional tourist point, Yehliu Geopark

Someone was fishing there alone and there were a lot of rocks being eroded by wind, water, etc..A lot of mainlanders visiting there too....

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.
