Bee Umbrella Sky: The Miao Legend of Batik in Guizhou, China

Bee Umbrella Sky: The Miao Legend of Batik in Guizhou, China Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an ancient time, ten old men went to work creating the sky and the land. Yet the sky was not strong enough, and it collapsed. . . . They needed an umbrella under the sky instead and asked Goddess Washuang to make one. Clever and good with her hands, Washuang gathered pure white clouds from the sky to weave a very long cloth umbrella.

In 2010, Kuen Kuen Liu made a five month trip to Guizhou, China. Fascinated by the batik works of the Miao, she lived with the villagers, learning their batik process.

Illustrator and designer Kuen Kuen Liu is working on her PhD in art education at Penn State.

Synopsis:

A five-month journey in Guizhou took the illustrator Kuen Kuen behind the legends of Miao batik
