Comments ;-

We were on a visit to Sansin Township , Yilan County to view the famous Spring Onion and also the pear farm ( local named it as the General's pear ) .

Our friend introduced us to view a Famous wood craver and artist - Mary Leu .

We were so glad we visited the Museum and studio .

Mary Leu's museum and studio are a very simple and humble place and it not noticeable unless pointed out by the Locals.

The exhibits are exquisite and the wood carvings , gold and glass creations are out of this world. It is a pity that the visitors are not allowed to take photos of the works displayed .

The wood carving is very very impressive as all the intricate carvings are carved from a single piece of wood - yes a single piece of wood - no joints etc !

Yes , it was worth a visit and also a place to hunt for exquisite work of arts - all done by a master craftsperson and a genius .

A truly Icon of Yilan County , Taiwan .
