Enjoy peaceful moments with “Earth Worker” at Pengcun Wetland

64

Pengcun Wetland, located between Donggang and Linbian Townships of Pingtung County, is a former military camp. Well preserved with natural scenery, the area is now equipped with a parking lot for visitors to easily stop by and appreciate its waterfront views. Internationally renowned award-winning artist Chen Yu-liang and his team, YouTsun Art Group, recently built an artistic installation “Earth Worker” above the water, adding a sense of tranquility to this place as if time stopped here.

At 6 meters tall beside a deep-water pond, the artwork draws inspirations from Mother Earth and fits well into the surroundings with the materials it is based on - simple cement and sands. Chiseled with sculpting techniques, it suggests a raw, unsophisticated style. With mythological reliefs, “Earth Worker” explains the bay’s geological developments and colonial past.

There are a total of five wetlands within Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area, along the round-the-bay bikeway. Visitors can go to the wetlands on a bike. Pengtsun Wetland may also be reached by car - it is right on Provincial Highway 17, just 2 km away from Linbian Interchange of National Highway 3. Half a day is enough for exploring the wetland, the bayside pier, and the bay’s main bridge. At the end of the day, watch the sunset while caressing by ocean winds.

Pengtsun Wetland is open from 5am to 8pm. You are cordially invited to visit the place.
