New immigrant wins Philadelphia pressed flower contest

A Taiwanese participant won the third place of the pressed flower “Oscar”- the Philadelphia Flower show-pressed flower contest.

Lin Li-ron, a new immigrant from Malaysia, won the third place on the "dreamy garden" topic by combining her childhood memory and a scene from the movie "Avatar."

The topic of Philadelphia Flower show-pressed flower contest this year is “Celebrating Movies.” Three Taiwanese participants sent their works to the United States and each of them won the first, second, and third prize in the two- and three-dimension categories.

Lin said, “My idea for the work came from my hometown.” When using the pressed flower to make the "Avatar" scene, she remembered her countryside hometown. ”My childhood memories are all in the painting.”
