Hualien Stone Sculpture Museum


The work contains two levels of connotations. At first, the woman carries a basket of millet spikes which are not only the main material of aboriginal millet wine culture, especially the Amis tribes have occupied more than half of the population in Hualien, and the millet has played an imperative role of catalyst in the Ami tribe’s Harvest Festival. While here it implies the celebration of harvest is impending, therefore, they should start to brew millet wines for the festival; and the other deeper connotation of the stonework consists in the dressing of the woman: she isn’t dressed in Taiwan indigenous people's traditional dress but tends to wear the blouse and slacks of the Han’s. The artist deliberately uses this way to praise the cultural harvest of Hualien which illustrates the aboriginal and the Han’s cultures have been coexisted and built up a distinctive cultural scene in Hualien.
