In a few of my previous posts, you might recall I mentioned the abundance of natural marble rocks found in the eastern part of Taiwan. Here we visit a marble factory with an attached museum and all the statues you see were created there.
This fountain reminds me of something one might see in Europe.
The entrance to the factory is lined with cute statues of the twelve Chinese Zodiac figures.
Inside the factory, a loud and dangerous-looking machine saws the thick marble.
A worker polishes the previously sawed marble pieces.
What else did I see at the factory? A "hand" bench.
Two Maneki Neko or "Beckoning Cats".
And, ahem, what is this? Someone said it is a back massage chair. :)
