Taiwanese Water Buffalo

Taiwanese Water Buffalo
With a minimalistic and smooth line that defines the shape of the work, this sculpture carved out of black granite is in the form of a calf arduously plotting the land. The artist used water buffalo to symbolize the Taiwanese spirit. On the one hand, the water buffalo was used extensively in farming in Taiwan, a nation with deep agrarian roots. On the other hand, the water buffalo plotting the land is a metaphor for the spirit of the Taiwanese people, who put their head down to strive a better future. The work is a reminder to the modern generation that hard work is the only way to achieve success.
