Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

July 7 is the day of Tanabata. The festival is based on a Chinese legend about the stars Hikoboshi(Altair of the Eagle) and Orihime(Vegar of the Lyre), a harmonious couple separated by the Milky Way, who cross the river and meet once a year on that day.
It is customary for people to write their wishes on strips of paper in five colors, hang them on branches of bamboo trees and put them out by the eaves of their homes.
