A unique drawing illustrated by Creative Japanese Calligraphy Artist Kōji Takano.
This artwork was drawn in WActivity JAPAN live session on YouTube.



The author created this artwork for the Japanese national holiday of 「七夕」“Tanabata” (literally “evening of the seventh”), the Japanese “Star Festival” which is celebrated every year on July 7th.
It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented respectively by the stars Vega and Altair). According to legend, the Milky Way separates the lovers who are allowed to meet each other only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.
During this festivity it is customary to hung to bamboo trees some paper strips called 「短冊」“tanzaku”, handwritten wishes and hopes for the future.
The illustration depicts some “Tanabata”’s most iconic symbols: the moon, the bamboo tree and a brightly colored Japanese wind chime「風鈴」“fūrin”, with written on it: 「信念」“shinen”, “belief”.
