Juming Museum

On Sunday, we took a trip to Juming Museum in Chin-shan, northern Taiwan. Juming Museum is a giant outdoor showcase for the sculptures of Ju Ming. Unfortunately for us, except for the final half-hour of our trip, it was raining during much of our time there. I don’t know if weather forecasts in Taiwan are accurate, or whether it is simply impossible to predict the weather in Taiwan, because when we were on the bus ride to the museum, everyone was surprised when it began to rain.

The Armed Forces collection:

From a distance, I thought this was a giant middle-finger:

This one looks lonely:

The zipper-pond was created by Ju Ming’s son, Ju Jun:

The Taichi Square (this one is my favorite):

Hopefully I can make a return trip when the weather is a little more agreeable.

  1. We took the bus that picked us up in front of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum… the ride was about 40 minutes.
