An 8th century painting, “Fu Xi and Nü Wa,” depicts this mythological couple as having interlocked snake-like tails. The circle at the top is the sun containing a three-legged bird. The dots around the couple represent stars. The circle at the bottom is the moon containing a rabbit, an osmanthus tree and a toad. Photo: FILE
