Pun Design: Quails + Magpies

Punning Details:

The word ‘an 鹌’ in ‘an chun 鹌鹑’ for ‘quail’ puns on ‘an 安’ for ‘peace’ or ‘secure’. The word ‘‘xi 喜’ in ‘xi que 喜鹊’ for ‘magpie’ can mean ‘joy’ or ‘happiness’. Thus, the combination of quails and magpies can be used to convey the auspicious message of ‘May you enjoy peace and happiness’.


画面要素: 鹌鹑 + 喜鹊

谐音详情: 取‘鹌鹑’ 中 ‘鹌’ 与 ‘安’ 谐音和 ‘喜鹊’ 中的 ‘喜’ 字构成 ‘安喜’ 祝愿。
