The Chenglung wetlands were originally a vast farmland, it became a biodiversity wetland environment due to subsidence of the stratum and seawater backflow, and it is also an important habitat for birds. This work combines the conceptual images of migratory birds and water flow in the wetland, and created a wetland sculpture with driftwood.
The Black-winged Stilt has a wide ethnic group, mainly breeding in tropical and subtropical wetlands, and is also a bird species commonly seen in Chenglung wetlands. It walks on the wetland in a slow and elegant posture and breeds here, and making its ethnic group increasingly larger. This work is made of driftwood and combines the concept of migratory birds to echo the migration of different ethnic groups here, and also responds to the image of the waterbirds paradise and the local cultural landscape of the Chenglung wetlands.
