A True Story
Chinese exhibit A True Story is one of the most impressive and perhaps the most touching exhibit. Set to mournful music, it tells the sad story of a Chinese horticulturalist, Xu Xiu Juan who loved red crown cranes. After graduating from university, she travelled to Yangcheng Nature Reserve to care for these cranes. One day when she tried to save an injured crane, she slipped into a swamp. The crane survived but the girl never resurfaced. In the sculpture, Xu Xiu Juan embraces the beloved bird.
