The Three-legged Cat and the Hunter
Clay, cat bone models, writing
“During the few days I lived on the mountain, a tabby cat would always accompany me to sleep, sometimes at my feet, sometimes next to my pillow, and I would listen to its breathing until I fell asleep. It would nest in the corner of the warehouse, or curled up on the top of the solar battery. It was always bullied by other cats because it only had three legs.”
Participate in the life of tribal residents during this period, starting from the clues in life, such as eating, chatting, taking pictures, hunting, climbing, receiving climbers, etc., and understand the daily life on the “mountain” during the interaction process. Starting from a three-legged cat, understand the relationship between the Taroko people and the environment, then further explore the state of interaction between mountains and forests after modernization.
Every time I look at this jumping three-legged cat, I am reminded of the conflict between modern hunting equipment and traditional hunting culture. Sometimes I feel lke I can’t help too much, and I seem to have lost an arm here.
