The Tiger and the Magpie a Korean folk painting transcription

I had a desire to make art again but I wanted to try something different. I've always loved printmaking and felt this image was easily within that style. Then I fell into centuries of images describing Korea's adoration of the Tiger. I fell in love with this story. I hope this will be only the first I transcribe.

The Tiger and the Magpie-detail

This is a detail of The Tiger and The Magpie folk painting. Here you can see the Magpies, the Cicada, and the Magic Mushrooms in the three sacred mountains.

48" x 60" Graphite, Conte on Arches Paper Private Collection This drawing tells the story of my own adoption, the laws that keep us all apart, and the rights adoptees still don't have to know their origins. All people should have a right to know their medical history and children should be able to know whom they came from at a certain age. I was blessed to be raised by the people who adopted me, many aren't so fortunate.
