Fu Sen, Qixi, series of 4 digital illustrations, prints on glossy paper, A3 size, 2016. The prints tell the story of the Weaver Girl and the Cowherd, the Chinese equivalent of the Western myth of the Two Eagles: the love story between Zhinü (the weaver girl, daughter of the Goddess of Heaven, the star Vega) and Niulang (the cowherd, a humble human, the star Altair). Their love was not allowed, thus they were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (the Milky Way). Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a bridge(鵲橋; "the bridge of magpies") over the star Deneb in the Cygnus constellation ) to reunite for one day the couple and their two children, the stars β and γ Aquilae (Chinese: Hè Gu 1 and Hè Gu 3). The story is at the base of the ancient Qixi Festival (Chinese: 七夕节), also known as the Qiqiao Festival (乞巧节), celebrated since the Han Dynasty.
