A piece of living world

I took this photo at the largest sculpture exhibition in HK with 60 works by renowned Taiwanese artist Ju Ming, and this is a piece from the Living World series. This exhibition is held at one of the busiest shopping centers in Causeway Bay(until August 1). Being outdoor in a piazza, it surely attracts a lot of viewers who don't usually go to museums and I really appreciate this trend of promoting art in daily life.

What a great photo - it's an interesting sculpture and the onlookers are fascinated!

I agree with you - it's great that they bring art to the people without worrying that anyone might touch it. Great idea!
