Chinese Celestial Princess Pink Cherry Blossom Acrylic Painting
This is my Chinese Celestial Princess Pink Cherry Blossom Acrylic Painting Poster Print. This is a painting of Chángé- the Moon Fairy Princess. The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival or “Zhōng Qiū Jié” (中秋節) is one of China’s most important festivals, and a special time for family get-togethers. The Mid-Autumn occurs on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month each year (falling in September or October). It is a harvest festival, celebrated by people in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam. A long time ago in China there were ten suns in the sky. Because of this it was very hot! The blazing suns dried up the rivers and there was a serious drought. People were running out of water to drink and the crops in the rice fields were withering. A famous archer, Hòu yì, was summoned to shoot down 9 of the suns in the sky. He did it successfully and was rewarded a “pill of the immortality.” Hòu yì went home and gave the precious pill to his wife, Chángé, for safekeeping. A visitor of the archer’s, however, heard about this pill and wanted to steal it from his wife. As the visitor was about to steal the pill from her Chángé swallowed it. After she took the pill Chángé felt lighter and lighter. Then she started to float. She flew all the way to the moon. When Cháng é got to the moon she coughed up the pill and the pill became a rabbit. This acrylic poster print comes in 3 sizes: 11x14", 16x20", 20x30".
