Yu Gui Bei

The name of our artwork in Chinese is ”Yu Gui Bei.”  In English, this means something like “Turtle that holds a stele” There are thousands of these kinds of turtles around Taiwan. They are often underneath ancient steal. It is made of solid rock that has been carved in the shape of a turtle. This particular one was made during the Qian-long reign of the Qing Dynasty to show off his great success in conquest of Lin Song-wen. Lin Song-wen was a Taiwanese man who led a local rebellion against the Chinese Emperor. We like this artwork because it is the symbol of our ancient Taiwanese culture. It is a part of the heritage of our country.
