Mazhu (or Maju or Mazu)

A design piece, based on Chinese art/design styles from the 1970s.

Mazhu, often revered as an Ocean goddess, is actually based on a real person in Ancient times. It's said she became a Shenxian. Or the equivalent of a Saint in western terms.

Mazhu is the most widely known in South China, and even more among Chinese colony descendant cultures outside of China, throughout the Asian islands.

There are still reports of sightings of her out on the sea in a red gown, or saving the lives of people out at sea.
