   《哈雷金鋼》以極富原始生命力的古靈獸——犀牛為雛形,犀牛的身軀融合極具東方神秘色彩的麒麟背脊與金剛杵,並運用當代的藝術語言,挪用象徵工業文明的錨釘元素。
  作品形塑出堅挺的山形背脊與剛直幾何的硬邊線條,讓犀牛宛如穿上一件甲冑;高聳的犀牛鈦金角,除表現出人性化的拇指特色,同時又像徵著中華文化中對公平、正義、積極向上以及不屈不饒的奮鬥精神。作品造型有如一台哈雷重機,融入馬達與馬鞍的設計,兼具速度與激情、科技與時尚。結合其犀牛抬頭挺胸的運動姿態,具備了穩定、祥和與端莊的本質,帶有當代、時尚、科技的精神,賦予犀牛前所未見的氣勢與威嚴。

“Harley King Kong” uses an ancient beast——rhino as its prototype. Its body combines characteristics of Kylin backbone, Vajra pestle, and industrial rivets in a very contemporary way. This work is extraordinary in its mountainous ridge and rigid geometric shapes, making the rhino alike wearing an armour. Its soaring horn not only represents a thumb with fingerprint but also symbolizes righteous, perseverance, and optimistic spirit ingrained in Chinese culture. The sculpt of “Harley King Kong” resembles a Harley Davidson in many ways, merging technology and fashion,  meanwhile vividly shows a rhino’s indomitable position. Stability, harmony, and dignity are all revealed, giving this rhino unprecedented momentum and majesty.
