An imagined Vintage Tea Poster featuring the Taiwan Bamboo Partridge 已竹雞為主角的懷舊茶行廣告

This painting was inspired by vintage tea posters from Taiwan during the Japanese Colonial era, 1895 - 1945. Taiwan is still famous today for tea and is considered a producer of some of the best Oolong teas in the world. The bird in this painting is a Taiwan Bamboo Partridge, endemic to Taiwan. You can find them frequenting tea fields and mountainous areas up to 1000m.

這幅畫的靈感來自於日本殖民時期的茶行海報,大概是1895-1945年間。

台灣茶葉在現今依然非常有名,尤其烏龍茶更是世界著名。圖畫中的主角則是在茶園中常見的鳥類,竹雞。竹雞也是台灣特有種之一,你可以在1000公尺高的山是看到牠們的身影。
