Painting: Wishing Longevity

There is an ancient Chinese legend which talks about a goddess called Magu. Magu was very young and beautiful, forever looking as beautiful and innocent as an 18 year old girl. Actually she has been alive for tens of thousands of years. She once told a friend that she had seen the East Ocean turn from land to ocean no less than three times! This showed her longevity. Chinese people believe that whoever is lucky enough to taste a cup of Magu's wine will likewise be forever young, beautiful, and healthy.

This painting was given to the President of Russia, Mr. Vladimir Putin, as a gift from the artist.
