  • Provenance: a Southern California Estate

    Ju Ming held his premier exhibition, 'Essence of Wood', at the National History Museum, Taiwan in 1976, where he introduced the Taiji series to the collecting public. This piece, crafted just prior to the opening of this exhibition, communicates both the spiritual and physical energy embodied in this most Chinese of pastimes, the practice of Taiji.
