Capture the Moon

by Shirley Jackson

In Korean folklore, an Imugi is a type of proto-dragon often depicted as a large serpent. To become a true dragon, an Imugi must catch a yeouiju from the heavens. Yeouiju are the orbs you often see Eastern Dragons holding in their claws.

And with my piece, I wanted to depict such a moment while also having the yeouiju in this painting double as the moon to reflect my current fascination with astrology and the celestial giants in our night sky.
