Atayal (Chinese: 泰雅), also known as the Tayal and the Tayan, are one tribe of Taiwanese aborigines especially in Wulai. In the year 2000 the Atayal tribe numbered 91,883. This was approximately 23.1% of Taiwan's total indigenous population, making them the second-largest tribal group. The meaning of Atayal is "genuine person" or "brave man."
The Atayal Tribe is a fairly advanced culture. They originally lived by fishing, hunting, gathering, and growing crops on burned-off mountain fields. The tribe also practices crafts such as weaving, net knotting, and woodworking. They also have traditional musical instruments and dances.

I smiled when I saw this in the gallery, as I instantly knew this was your work :)
Another great idea to combine these three images together to give a great feeling for the statues and their variety. A really great note on the history of these indigenous people too. Really nicely done, always a pleasure to view your work!
All the best
