Taiwan: Stone and Wood Carvings


I am now spending a few days visiting with friends, drinking tea and meditating at the Tea Sage Hut, after a wonderful two weeks of traveling to tea farms in Taiwan.  Today we visited the town of San Yi which is known for its wood carvings. Lots of beautiful, large-scale works of art in not only wood but also stone and metal.  The textures, contrast and expressions drew me to these images.

I always love how natural textures and shapes draw me in. Usually it's textiles that I think of when I think of texture-love, but any natural material really works for this. Wood, stone, and fiber all work well in creating interest and depth.

Beautiful and charming place, welcoming people and exquisite tea. I'm thrilled for you that you're able to enjoy this second trip to 'the source'. Your photos are beautiful and I'm excited for more.
Thank you.

Such beautiful and inspiring images. Each one elicited a different reaction. The little round faced fellow just made me giggle. Thank you for sharing all that you have and I will be waiting for more of your observations and photos. Sending a hug for you, Steph.
