ABC Wednesday: K is for Kids


These are the photos of bronze figures of children that we took during our last Saturday, March 28 trip to Yingge (鶯歌). Yingge is famous for ceramics, but several art galleries exhibited bronze figures by famous local artists. The hallmark for this artist that created the two children in the above photo is the little monk-like boy. Here he is singing and the little girl is listening. The dark figure in the foreground is a bronze figure of a warrior diety.


These three pictures are actually of one single piece of art. Several girls and boys are playing and climbing on a tree.


This little boy is watching from the ground.


We like this little monkey boy particullarly, who makes us think of our son-in-law as a kid in India.


Here is another bronze creation. She makes us think of our granddaughter. We almost bought it.


Well who else, this little boy makes me think of me as a little boy long time ago, the future biologist, sitting by the pool and thinking of how to catch the next frog.

I remember that little boy sitting in our yard tracking ants going by for hours at a time. Sis

Gosh, these are gorgeous, and I am not even always particularly fond of sculpture. My favorite is the girl in your last post - I love the way her shoes are flopping off her feet!

You can see the joy and laughter in those children's faces. It's a great artist who can do that!
Well chosen
