Fengle Sculpture Park, Taichung, Taiwan

On Saturday, Nick and I decided to take a trip to the Taichung Fengle Sculpture Park. We have been trying to explore this city that we live in over the last couple of months, so this was just one stop on our Taichung Tour.

The park is a pretty nice place to walk around and enjoy a sunny day and there are plenty of places to sit in the shade and relax.

To give an objective review of the park, though, I have to admit that most of the sculptures were.... well let's just say Nick thinks the park should be renamed "Ugly Sculpture Park."

One of the interesting things about the sculptures is that a great deal of them are nude. In Fengle Park's defense... I really only took pictures of the ugly statues, but those are more fun to show you. So here are some pictures of the art in the park:

Here you may notice that the figure on the left has boobs, and the figure on the right.... well he's also anatomically correct. All I could think was... does this really increase the aesthetics or in any way add to the art of the piece??? But hey, I'm certainly no art critic, so what do I know?

Nick made some friends by the pool - that is not currently filled with water - with these nude, chubby, pink people.
