天上鸦与地上鸟

Sometimes I still dream... Get a life!!!

今天工作时经过Lorong Stewart,遇到了这幅壁画。黑色的乌鸦高飞在上而蓝白的鸟儿则地上闲。这幅壁画似乎很有意思,想必画家是想要传达些什么讯息吧。

Today I have met with this mural during my work when I was passing through Stewart Lane. The black crow is flying high while the blue bird is standing on the ground. The artist of this mural seems to be trying to convey some kind of message through this artwork.


在鸟儿的上方写着“有时候,我还在梦想着”。

Above the bird is written 'Sometimes I still dream'.


而在乌鸦的下方则写着“Get a life”。

And below the crow is written 'Get a life'.

个人对壁画的解说是鸟儿在地上时常幻想着自己的完美世界,而乌鸦则告诉鸟儿别活在幻想的世界里,应该要实际地活着。乌鸦身上的黑色代表着现实的生活的缺陷与痛苦,而鸟儿的蓝白则代表着想象中的完美世界。换句话说,我们不应该老是想着要一步登天或是用些旁门左道的方法来达成某件事,而是应该脚踏实地慢慢一步一步的努力向前进。

For me, what the artist trying to convey is that we should not find the easy ways or short cut in order to achieving something but to slowly proceed with a step by step manner. The coloured bird represent the perfect world it is imagining while the black crow is trying to lesson the bird not to live in it's fantasy world but to face the real world and get a life.
