Maddie points to some jade cicadas
Maddie: These cicadas were for eternal life and reincarnation. They were put in dead people's mouths.
Dan: So much of what we've seen is tied up with death.
Maddie: Well, if you think about it, the way a culture buries its dead says a lot about the culture itself.
Dan: That's true, I guess.
Maddie: And the way people play shows the personality of a culture. Let's look at another jade.
Dan: Hey, I've seen this one on TV. This cabbage is famous.

(续上期)

曼蒂指着玉蝉
曼蒂:这些蝉代表永生和轮回。它们会被放在往生者的嘴里。
丹:我们看的好多东西都跟死亡脱离不了关系。
曼蒂:其实你仔细想一想,一个文化埋葬死者的方式,其实透露了很多那个文化本身的讯息。
丹:我想那是真的。
曼蒂:而人们休闲玩乐的方式则能显示一个文化的性格。我们去看另一件玉器吧!
丹:嘿,我在电视上看过这个。这棵白菜很有名。


重点解说:

★ cicada (n.) 蝉,亦做为cicala
★ eternal (a.) 永恒的
★ reincarnation (n.) 转世,轮回
★ tie up 系牢
★ bury (v.) 埋葬;buries是第三人称单数的动词形态
★ cabbage (n.) 甘蓝菜

The color associated with Venus as well as the color of the sky, blue has been sacred in religions dating back to prehistoric times. Today it is associated with the Virgin Mary. We sometimes say we are "blue" when we are less than happy. Still, blue is a happy, even lucky color for most of us. And when we have unexpected good luck, we often say it came "out of the blue." It is an especially lucky color for people born under the signs of Aquarius, Libra, and Taurus.

让人联想到金星和天空的蓝色,在史前时期就具有宗教上的神圣意义。如今,人们把它与圣母马利亚联系在一起。我们不大高兴时,有时会说我们“blue”,表示有些忧郁。但对于我们大多数人来说,蓝色仍然是个象征快乐、甚至吉祥的颜色。当我们有意外的好运时,我们常说“喜从天降”。对于出生属于宝瓶座、天秤座和金牛座的人来说,蓝色是个特别吉祥的颜色。
