This poster introduces the Taoyuan Martyrs
Shrine first built as a Shinto shrine in 1938 while Taiwan was a colony
of Japan, and later transformed in to a Chinese Martyrs Shrine after
the second world war.(The Administrative Committee of Taoyuan County
Confucius Temple & Taoyuan Shrine 2009). The different stages and
events that took place on the shrine reflects how socio-political and
economical factors could influence its conservation process, with some
comparison to the shrine in Taichung.
The poster is aimed for the visitors of the
shrine, with possible interest to cultural heritage, in hope of
inspiring them to think about the history of this heritage, how it came
to its recent state, what were the influences behind the process.
