Artists statement

This work is about the 'Buffalo Boy and the Seventh Fairy' from Chinese folklore. The Emperor of Heaven’s seventh daughter loved the buffalo boy. She left heaven and went down to the earth and married him. She became a weaver to make a living, while he tended buffalos. Their life was very happy and they had a daughter and a son. But the Emperor got angry. He sent heaven’s military to bring her back. He would allow them to meet at the other side of the Milky Way on the night of the seventh of July every year. Fortunately there were many birds who gathered to form a bridge. Every year they had a family reunion on the “bridge of birds’.
