BRONZE SCULPTURE OF CANE SHIELD ARMY

After a couple of minutes at the beach, we popped round to the place where the Bronze Sculpture known as "Driving away the Invaders by Cane Shield Army" is located. According to the records, the Cane Shield Army was organized by Zheng Chenggong, they were incomparably capable and vigorous and brave and battlewise, and won many victories in driving the Holland invaders out of Taiwan.


The bronze sculpture of "Driving away the Invaders by Cane Shield Army" lies in the center square of the Bright Moon Park. It's 123 meters long, 4.7 meters high and 18 tons. It's the largest bronze historical-figure sculpture in Xiamen at present. The foreground of the sculpture is Zheng Chenggong galloping ahead with sword drawn in the middle, and escorted by the generals and advisers. The background is the huge and grand cane shield army, the grand spectacle and the various vivid moulds have high artistic value. This sculpture was awarded "Excellent Prize" in the national city-sculpture competition in 1994.
