  • This kind of compound word is not officially recognized, nor is it used by the people. You can think of it as a kind of artistic creation, and no one can understand it except the designer himself. There's no need to try to understand the words, it's not the right word, it's like you modify many letters to form one letter.

Everything is almost identical except in the third group "雲中" is changed to "瑤池", in the fifth group "仙" is written as "僊", and in the seventh group "釆和花籃" is changed to "藍採背山"

仙-->僊 and 釆 -->採 are both wrong words

  • Where do you see 藍採背山? I don't see it.
