TAIWAN ~ Rippling Moonlit Talk - Holland Lake - Chiayi city ~

...First of three great postcards sent by my dear postcard friend Ravindra who visited PHILATAIPEI 2016 World Stamp Championship Exhibition....all with beautiful temporary stamp cancellations...Thanks a lot !! ヽ(ヅ)ノ

Rippling Moonlit Talk Bridge is designed by the artist Wen-chih Wang and built in 2011 of aluminium, stainless steel, pottery steel and iron.

The subject structure is a see-through artwork of knitted aluminium plates. It is so designed as to display a magical scene of light and shadow like a birds nest on the lake.

 The upper half of the birds nest in the middle of the artwork in a peach shape symbolizes "the Peach City" as the city was originally called. On one side the tree nests seem to stand out in the shape of a turkey's tail end in association with the renowned local delicacy of "Turkey Rice", incorporating the cultural and sight-seeing characteristics of Chiayi City into the artwork. – from a notice made by Chiayi City Government.
