Echoing the spirit projected by the arena where the Taipei New Horizon Building is situated, an imagery of the Formosan sika deer antlers is used to create this large polygonal sculpture. The creative inspiration is derived from the artist’s own experience with encountering a Formosan sika deer on a moonlit night on the Green Island. Furthermore, one of the key objectives in regards to the creative cultural industry is to learn and understand one’s own historical culture, ecological environment, and local aesthetics, and to apply those learning with creative endeavors that form collective memories and to connect with other cultural viewpoints around the world.
The emergence of the giant antlers from the ground is a metaphor for the land’s bountiful vitality and culture, and expresses the anticipation for Taiwan’s cultural and creative industry’s promising future with an increasing global recognition. Under the crescent moon, the mother deer is leaping and the fawns are resting peacefully. As the mirrored surface reflects the surrounding environment and people, a fable of the wild is jointly composed by all.
