The Temporary Exhibition Areas The Arts of Taiwan Wood Sculpture
  The art of sculpture in Chinese has a long persisting history. Its development in each era possesses uniqueness of its own kind. Unlike the Greek, Roman or Indian, whose tradition is to emphasize on human body, the Chinese sculpture is lack of monumental portraits. However in terms of appearances in  animals and human figures buried with the dead, the Chinese sculpture is distinctive in its own way. The sculpture on Buddhist deities reflects the traditional esthetics, expressing the beauty of figures and showing astonishing creativity.
