Sculpture in the park
In Changchun Sculpture Park, two international sculpture conferences, nine international sculpture exhibitions and more than 30 tours of sculpture works were held. Especially in 2008, it cost millions of yuan to make the French sculptor Rodin's "Thinker" settle down, and enhance the popularity of Changchun theme park. Rodin's sculpture was only over 70 centimeters high. Later, the French enlarged it three times and made it into a mold for limited casting. Therefore, it is generally accepted that the original mold casting works are genuine works. There are only dozens of original casting works in the world. Changchun is the only original work in China. Entering the park gate, visitors can see the sculpture at first sight.
This sculpture took Changchun for nearly three years and has done a lot of work to import it from the Rodin Museum in France, with an investment of about 1 million yuan. The sculpture "The Thinker" will be placed on the central axis of Changchun World Sculpture Park, which can be seen by people passing through the main entrance of Changchun World Sculpture Park. The introduction of The Thinker marks that Changchun World Sculpture Park has established its mainstream position in the world. In addition to the "thinker" park, there are more famous sculptures: Flying, Observer, Nile River, Love of Spring, Sea Flower, Pangu and so on.
The Museum mainly displays 82 micro-sculptures of Stone Records, which have been completed by Peng Zushu, a famous master of Arts and crafts in China, after ten years.
Peng Zushu introduced that his Stone Records, which is the first time in China, adopted a variety of micro-carving arts, combining literature, painting, calligraphy, seal carving, micro-carving, sculpture and other arts.
The Peng Zushu Museum of Art will be open to the public from 9:00 to 16:00 every day. The micro-engraved Stone Story, namely A Dream of Red Mansions, is a stone Book completed by Peng Zushu in early 2002 after his retirement, which lasted eight years and was repaired for two years. This stone book is based on Qi Liao Shengxu's 80 chapters of "A Dream of Red Mansions". Each time, there are 82 stones, together with preface and postscript. The number of stones with the largest number of words is as high as 11,000 words, and the minimum number is more than 3,600 words, totaling more than 600,000 words. Tell me the author's point of view. According to the introduction, the stone used in this book is the top grade of seal stone, including Changhua Tianhuangshi, Balin Fuhuangshi, Changhua and Balin Chixueshi, Shoushan Furong Stone, Litchi Stone and Qingtianfengmen Blue Stone. It contains more than 50 kinds of famous seal stone products. It should be said that the famous stones in the north and south of Dajiang River are all concentrated together. Every stone is like a book, while the small one is like a palm. It is colorful, square or round, with different shapes. The characters are carved in the middle of the seal stone. They are like flies'heads and spider's silk. They can be meticulously and smoothly written under a ten-fold magnifying glass. They reproduce the posture of calligraphy and show a strong aureate and stone atmosphere. Peng Zu said that the color selection, design and carved contents of the 82 stones are consistent with the contents of A Dream of Red Mansions. Unlike other people carved A Dream of Red Mansions, he focused on the small stories with philosophical life in each stone, in order to make people think and reflect.
