Chang'e, Goddess of the Moon by Tabascofanatikerin Chang'e, Goddess of the Moon by Tabascofanatikerin
A small, rather quick painting of Chang'e, a Chinese woman who's said to be the Goddess of the moon in a Chinese legend.
I learned about this legend as I witnessed the Chinese Mid-Autumn festival in Swiss Basel where it seems to be celebrated each year on September 30th. Last year (2016) I was there the first time and enjoyed it a lot: There were shows to watch (like musicians and dancers), there was yummy food like dumblings and mooncakes and various small market stalls (with books about China, health programs...). I also went there this year, just a few days ago.

Chang'e is said to be a Goddess since she drank a special elixir in order to prevent it to be stolen by a thief.

What she's holding in her hands are a white rabbit (like she seems to hold it a lot in artworks) and a mooncake.

Painted with acrylics.
