Images of Childhood in Taiwan Memory

 

The exhibition of ‘Images of Childhood in Taiwan Memory’ presents the historical images of children from over a hundred years in Taiwan. There are four themes on display: ‘Children’s Clothing’, ‘Children’s Games’, ‘Children and Buffaloes’ and ‘Children and Women’.

1. Children ‘s Clothing

Clothing is the most obvious element reflecting children's life. Through the photos of different ethnic groups and times, such as traditional Aboriginal costumes, traditional Chinese clothes and embroidered shoes, Japanese costumes and hats, we can observe the changes of Taiwanese children's clothing in different periods. What is the special feature of clothes you wear now?

2. Children’s Games

What were some games that children in Taiwan used to play? Do you remember those jingling rhymes you chanted when playing those games? You are invited to enter the world of children’s games. We used to chant in Mandarin, “Little ball, banana oil,” and “One penny, two pennies, three triangles,” and we used to chant in Taiwanese, “Asphalt road, sticks to my feet,” and “Big fat boy, frying chives.”

3. Children and Buffalos

What comes to your mind when you hear the words “children in Taiwan” and “animals”? Huang Tu-shui, a sculptor whose relief sculpture “The Portrait of Water Buffalos” was created in 1930. The sculpture shows water buffalos and cowherd boys, a sight often seen in the countryside in Taiwan. The following pictures show images of children and water buffalos collected in Taiwan Memory.

4. Children and Women

The image of Mother and child conveys the most intimate relationship among parents and children.
