Legendary Milkyway Picture

There is a myth that the daughter of the sky god fell in love and wished to marry. Her father disliked this idea both because he didn't wish her to marry and because she was the one who wove the clouds into the sky. Because of his dislike he decided to seperate the two forever and so he place them on seperate sides of the shores of the Milky Way never to be together again. The magpies taking pity on the poor couple used their wings to create a bridge between the shores so that for one day a year the couple could be together again.
