Legend of the Bright Pearl - Watercolors on Canvas|
by Kathi Day © 2005
| Watercolors on 20 x 16" canvas frame.|
For the legend of the bright pearl in which a golden phoenix and a jade dragon find a beautiful pebble which they polish into a pearl. It is stolen by the queen of heaven who lives on the moon. They track it down to get it back, but during a scuffle it is lost over the edge and falls to earth. The phoenix and dragon follow it down. When the pearl touched the ground it became a clear green lake, and the golden phoenix and jade dragon could not bear to leave it, so they turned themselves into mountains to stay beside the lake.
