A thought-provoking bronze sculpture by artist Wu Ching Ju.
Fusing ancient Chinese traditions and Western techniques, Wu’s art combines the rigid properties of bronze with the delicate beauty of human nature.
With influences ranging from flower-arranging to calligraphy, she sensitively abstracts figurative sculpture from its traditional form to explore the difference between Eastern and Western aesthetics.
Wu says: “At times, the universe can be overwhelming and it is easy to be submerged in fear. When we step into the world with a pure heart and soul, the universe in return graces us with a shelter of boundless beauty.”
