Mr. Dubanan was a revered local artist. Mr. Dubanan’s designs are inspired by Rukai beliefs. The most important aboriginal belief is union, and the second is family. Mr. Dubanan combines these two crucial elements in the church architecture with many detailed designs. He used gravel and tile to build the church bell, hoping that the sound of the bell would attract all believers to gather together at the church. The Presbyterian Church was Mr. Dubanan’s last project, one in which he successfully expressed the Rukai spirit. To the people of the Rukai, the church also serves as a memorial to the memory of Mr. Dubanan.
