Ah To has done a very good job illustrating 81 Cantonese proverbs (among them, some are 歇後語). It is very enjoyable to look at all the details of every single corner of the drawing. It is also very educational in reading the captions about the proverbs. Great work in the drawings and the translations.
“The Great Canton and Hong Kong Proverbs”
In 1559, Dutch artist Pieter Bruegel created the oil painting “Netherlandish Proverbs” which illustrates many Dutch proverbs to praise the Dutch culture. In 2014, Ah To imitated the idea and created “Great Canton and Hong Kong proverbs” illustrating 81 Cantonese proverbs to propagate the Cantonese culture and defend Cantonese.
