Among Taiwan・s indigenous tribes, the Paiwan may be the one most involved in the arts. The tribe boasts a number of famous artists, many of whom derive inspiration from the myths and traditional symbols of Paiwan culture.There・s a real sense of raw, elemental nature in this creative works here. Look at all the ceramic pots with snake symbols.The ceramic vessels made by Paiwan artists can be divided into :father; and :mother; styles. Vessels with both designs are known as :yin-yang; pots, and hold even greater symbolic importance.No showy shop signs decorate the fronts of the artist workshops in Sandimen, but walking in, you・ll see plenty of amazing things.
In Paiwan society, these kinds of colorful glass beads was the exclusive property ,and important part of attire at family ceremonies such as weddings.
