Painting: The Seventh Eve

One painting from a group of eight

The seventh eve, in the lunar calendar, is like a Chinese Valentine's Day, which is the day for the cowherd and the girl weaver to meet secretly. Their story is one of the most widespread and oldest myths.

The artist's painting reflects this theme through children playing. Several children in the painting are holding a feast on the Seventh Eve, they made a bridge of cakes and biscuits in order to allow the cowherd and girl weaver to cross the silver river to meet.
