SVG EMBASSY IN TAIWAN PRESENTS MOFA TAIWAN WITH PAINTING ENTITLED ‘LIFE ON DAII LU’

Today (Tuesday, October, 26), in commemoration of the 42nd Anniversary of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’s Independence which takes place on Wednesday 27th October, 2021, The Embassy of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in Taiwan, proudly presented MOFA (Taiwan) with a mixed media painting entitled ‘Life on Daji Lu’ (2021).

This 88cm by 64cm painting was created by Mr. Sean Roache, a 2019 Vincentian MOFA scholar who resides in Kaohsiung and is an Engineering student in the field of Intelligent Systems and Automation Engineering at I-Shou University.

Mr. Roache describes his painting, which is the second in a series of three, as “the union of the family and an elderly lady approaching a crossroad which symbolically represents the meeting point of different lives on our journey in this life”.

At this morning’s presentation ceremony, H.E. Vice Minister Alexander Yui, who accepted the painting on behalf of MOFA, greatly commended Mr. Roache’s discipline and dedication for being able to produce such beautiful art while attending to his studies.

The Vice Minister also referred to the Embassy of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines as having been “the missing link” which finally took its place among the other embassies in Taiwan with its official opening on 8th August, 2019.

In her remarks, H.E. Ambassador Andrea Bowman of the Embassy of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, said that the two sets of travellers “intersect at a point where a union in journeying takes place. This intersection is representative of so much, but in the context of our two countries, it symbolizes the union of allied development and pathways to prosperity which our democratic countries have chosen for ourselves”.

She thanked the Vice Minister for making the time to accept this gesture of art diplomacy which serves to strengthen the cross-cultural relations of the two countries.
