Comic-con Commission – Tanabata Matsuri, Inspired Piece

(From Stan’s Official Facebook)

Here is a photo of another Comic-con commission. This was inspired by the story of the Tanabata Matsuri–the Festival of the Weaver-girl and the Cow tender. Two celestial lovers are separated by the waters of the Milky Way. Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th Lunar month, magpies spread their wings across the river allowing the couple to spend a few precious hours together. However, if it rains, the magpies cannot come and the couple must remain separated until the next year.
