Immigrate, Settle, Cultivate, Study

This work of public art was created for the Liudui Hakka Cultural Park with the theme of Immigrate, Settle, Cultivate, Study. This work attempts to emphasize familial continuity, links to ethnic history, regional values, neighborly help and sharing, and to encourage the core societal consciousness and cultural spirit of developing both hard work and serious studies.

The piece expresses the spirit and tradition of ancestors in the Liudui region cherishing their homes and passing down traditions in agricultural cultivation and academic studies so that later generations will remember the words of their predecessors. It echoes how we are revisiting an agricultural-oriented civilization in this age of globalization through the concept of ensuring a sustainable environment.
