Once upon a time the Sun and the Moon were married
Meet Russian artist Lyubov Toshcheva, whose incredibly beautiful art inspired me to add a fairy tale to her colorful paintings on silk, in other words – batik. Now back to the tale. Once upon a time the Sun and the Moon were married, and they had many children who were the stars. The Sun was very fond of their children, but whenever he tried to embrace any of them, he was so hot that he burned them up. This made the Moon so angry that finally she forbade him to touch them again, and he was greatly grieved.

One day the Moon went down to the spring to do some washing, and when she left she told the sun that he must not touch any of their children in her absence. When she returned, however, she found that he had disobeyed her, and several of the children in had perished.

She was very angry, and picked up a banana tree to strike him, whereupon he threw sand into her face, and to this day you can see the dark marks on the face of the Moon. Then the Sun started to chase her, and they have been going ever since. Sometimes he gets so near that he almost catches her, but she escapes, and always far ahead.
