Hehe Erxian (The Two Gods of Love)

Tags: blessing | Hehe Erxian | print

This print is used to congratulate couples on their wedding. Two boys hold a lotus and a treasure box, respectively, as a homophone (hehe) of the Chinese characters for “harmony and good union.” On the ground are a magpie and a string of money which add meanings of festivity and fortune.
