TaiChi in Exchange Square

I really like this bronze sculpture by Ju Ming in Central, in fact, it is one of the world famous Tai Chi series. It is amazing that Ju can so vividly express the fluidity of tai chi movments through angular lines and rustic materials. This sculpture is a permanent display at the Exchange Square, somehow I imagine that it plays a role to keep the money men sane! Links: another view of this sculpture , Ju Ming Museum in Taiwan

Nice shot. Looks like stone to me. That's a lot of chipping!

It is interesting that the body is so thick and bulky but that it captures the sense of fluid motion. I like the pointing finger!

Wow, it looks very massive. It must have been quite heavy when they installed it.

Wow yeah...that structure captured the true movement of TaiChi! I almost can feel it move, especially since it is surrounded by water!

Thanks for the footprints :-)

what I also like about this sculpture is that I can also see the outline of traditional Chinese costumes, eg, the wide sleeves. If you search on the net you'll see photos of Ju Ming's sculptures with different taichi movements.
