We are looking at simplistic but beautiful, captivating designs with the colors of the magpie potentially as an accent. We emphasize magpie due to the story of the Aquila constellation from Chinese folklore.
This is the story:
In Chinese, the asterism consisting of α, β, and γ Aquilae is known as Hé Gǔ (河鼓; lit. "river drum"). Altair is thus known as Hé Gǔ èr (河鼓二; lit. "river drum two", meaning the "second star of the drum at the river"). However, Altair is better known by its other names: Qiān Niú Xīng (牵牛星) or Niú Láng Xīng (牛郎星), translated as the cowherd star.
These names are an allusion to a love story, The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl, in which Niulang (represented by Altair) and his two children (represented by β and γ Aquilae) are separated from respectively their wife and mother Zhinu (represented by Vega) by the Milky Way. They are only permitted to meet once a year, when magpies form a bridge to allow them to cross the Milky Way.
