角色介紹 / Characters

霧社事件如其名,霧一般眾說紛紜,,史料人名時常相互矛盾。但藝術創作畢竟不同於純歷史學術研究,應從零散史料與耆老口述中取捨結合想像,再創造人物形象與畫面情境。英雄人物事蹟眾多,單幅繪畫無法全數備載,所以象徵性以起義六社的代表人物作畫面構思。

Wushe Incident, which took place in Wushe ( literally a misty county), is itself misty . Documents from the past were self- contradictory, and we can hardly rebuild the real history only from fragments and the oral history of elder people. Fortunately, art creation is different from historical investigation. While I try to make my work convincing historically, I also combine it with imagination in shaping characters and scenes. There were many people engaging in this heroic event, and a single work cannot possibly pay tribute to all of them. Since there are six tribes participating in this rebellion, I put characters from six tribes in my work as representatives.
