Turning the Maps: EU vs TW/翻轉地圖大亂鬥:歐洲 vs 臺灣

Turning the Maps: EU vs TW/翻轉地圖大亂鬥:歐洲 vs 臺灣

This is a map of Europe, rotated 90 degrees clockwise. It appears to be a queen with Spain as the head, Italy as one of her arms... etc. The first time I saw a turned European map was by Czech Republic. Their version puts Bohemia right at the heart of the queen.
這是一幅順時針翻轉九十度的歐洲地圖。如此一來,歐洲成了位皇后:以西班牙為首,意大利為臂...我頭一次看到翻轉的歐洲地圖是捷克人畫的,他們的版本把波西米亞放在皇后的心上。不知當年這類地圖面世時,是否曾經誘發瘋狗群之集體狂吠?


Taiwanese thought our island was a piece of sweet potato, until some smart ass dug out this ancient map, and called it a whale.
