Nov 27, 2016 Culture Comments Off on Beijing designer wins Kinmen mascot contest
A logo of a wind lion god surrounded by a Eurasian otter and a hoopoe bird by Beijing designer Su Rong (??) has won the first prize in a mascot contest in offshore Kinmen County.
Of the 1,304 entries submitted, 760 were from Taiwanese designers and 386 from Chinese designers. A total of 157 were from professional designers and 1,147 from students.
The 26-year-old female designer, the founder of Rong Brand Culture Company in Beijing, was not able to attend the award ceremony in Kinmen on Nov. 14 because she did not have time to process a visa to the islands.
Her winning design, called "Kinmen Master," features a red wind lion god similar to the color of a red-brick house. The use of the wind lion god, otter and hoopoe symbolizes protection on land, in water and in the air.
The wind lion god is a carved stone structure standing in front of a house or an intersection to protect people from northeast monsoon winds in southern China, Taiwan, the Ryukyu Islands and Japan.
The jury said Su's design was simple with clear characteristics, and stood out with its bright colors.
Taiwanese designer Lee Ping-hao (???) won second prize with a logo of an otter with the head of a wind lion god.
Among all images, the wind lion god was the most popular, with 621 works using it, followed by the otter (172), a sorghum, wheat and wine pot (78) and military-related images (60).
