'Run to Victory (Lige Size Asian Rhino sculpture statue)' by Li-Jen SHIH
Description: Lucky Rhinoceros Life size Yard statue, Browsing Rhino Bronze sculpture statue for Outside Outdoors Exterior display in Park, Square.Garden or Yard by the International sculptor Li-Jen Shih who writes...... "Statement of Rhino Family The rhinos have existed in the earth for more than sixty million years. Their history is longer than the human. In ancient Chinese culture, the rhino stands for a sacred animal to ward off evil spirits. It was often used as the decorative design on the bronzes and contains a highly artistic value. It was also applied on the jade craft to make the wine vessels in rhino’s shapes as a symbol of the king. Rhinos’ horns are also good craft materials, there are lots of beautiful cups made from them, it was said that using the rhino-horn to drink could make the wine taste sweeter. The leather suit of armour wore by the Yi-tribe warriors in Sichuan are the product from leather of rhinos. In the famous Chinese medicine and herbs guidebook Bencao gangmu by Li Shichen (1518-1593), rhino horns were described as a rare medicine to be able to detoxicate and to antidote the poison. In Chinese phrase is a saying “Xiniu wangyue” (the rhino looks over the moon) inspired by the character of rhinos, meaning the long waiting and hopes. Rhinos have been one of the favourite hunting objects for the hunters, now they are protected by the IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Rhinos are good at self-healing and named as the protector of the forest. Their instinct to step the fire off helped prevent a lot of forests from being burned. Because of this character, the fire brigade also used rhino as its logo. In the movie Avantar also used rhinos as an element to symbolize the justice. From the ancient time to nowadays, rhino has been treasure and rare. Although it is a creature from the remote antiquity, besides its stark look and sturdy character, his unique shape also contains a futurity with a sense of technology. Thus I chose rhino as my subject to create a series of sculpture works. Rhino Father is the first work to begin from the series of Rhino Family. He has strong legs and a hard body to present that he is capable to protect his family and his territory and to carry the responsibility of taking care and lead the family. In my works I don’t just simply copy and depict the realistic outlook of rhino, besides its animal characters I add in more humane and mechanical representations to transform the classical realism into a modern vocabulary with an exploiting spirit. I transformed the rhino horn into the thumb that symbolizes the logo of a great leader to represent the great power and the hope of continuing his family. The tail stands for the torch of victory, the armour on his body represents his strong, hardy character. I plan to develop Rhino Family as a series of complete sculpture works. In the future, there will be Rhino Mother to stand for the Mother Nature that creates all the lives in the image of tenderness and care. Rhino Boy will be made in a mechanical shape to symbol the look into the future. And then is Lady Rhino in a modern modish shape. At last will be a Rhino House in a shape like the sport car Lamborghini with a minimal lines and classic shape. The works of Rhino Family express my views toward life and world, through the roles of a family, it tells my characters of both being strong and tender, on my way of leading the trend, I also not forget to pay homage to the eternal aesthetics of classics.

'Swift Horse (Trotting Mythical Ferghana Horse statuee)' by Li-Jen SHIH
Description: The Swift Horse is the descendant of a famed breed, Ferghana horses, in historical record. It was the mount of Guan Yu, the lead of one of four ancient steeds dated back to the time of Three Kingdom Period. According to legend, it was depicted as a swift horse with red sheen hair coated as fire, ten feet long, and eight feet high, and having reputation for capable of traveling thousands miles in daytime, or nocturnal more than eight hundred miles, roaring through the sky while it bellows. In order to acquire those divine horses, the imperial Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty projected military power twice to the Western Regions; during the Three Kingdom Period, with his swift horse (or named as Red Hare) aside Guan Yu, the valor who is brave enough to threaten a great majority has been praised enduring through the ages. Since then, a hero with a steed rules an important part in those romantic ambitious stories. SHIH Li-Jen’s artwork, “Swift Horse” refined the beautifully upright posture from steed in mythology, and extended with his own unique mark: an Alicorn imprinted with genic spiraled pattern symbolized outstanding leadership, and featuring the steed partially realistic and divine. Coated golden armor to emphasize its loyal dedication and fearless bravery, with all ears it steps vigorously carrying his master through any barriers and obstacle. The steed has gifted talent revealing its ability at the right moment. Scrutinize his every step, the muscular thigh is the strength while racing, and the move flows through the top to the bottom, initiate from the legs to the knees. Like a rapid fire, its races with ease and grace and moving successively. There are knee pads on legs to manifest its elegant and noble status and a metaphor that this fine horse is praised by Bole, a talent scout. The immortal “Swift Horse”, a protector of the commercial patron saint, Guan Yu, stands for integrity, justice, and income. It is a proud Ferghana that it only accompanies heroes, and its expectation and destiny is to open a new chapter in history with the master.
