The popular festival made international headlines on Monday as The Guardian listed a bamboo-made artwork on display in Pingzhen as one of the 16 best photos of the weekend.

Other photos captured alongside the artwork include Thailand’s student movement, a marathon participant wearing a face mask in Spain, and protesters waving a black flag on the shores of Israel.

“The Ripple Maze at Gaoshuang,” created by Lee Kuei-chih (李蕢至), is a natural sculpture in a rice field located in the agricultural area of Taoyuan.

The magnificent scenery in the rice paddies reminds the artist of his childhood memories. Ripples caused by the farmers in the rice paddles gently undulate on the surface of the water and become the artist’s most beautiful creation and nurture his life.
