Beyond Dajia's Gate

Author Ballboss
Illustrator Ballboss

From a young age, the children of Dajia hear stories about Mazu, the goddess of the sea, whose birthday is celebrated each year during the third month of the lunar calendar. Worshippers come from near and far to join a great procession, filled with all sorts of interesting vehicles and a parade of mythological characters. Amidst the music, free food, and dancing, a mysterious bond forms between the villagers and worshippers. After the children of Dajia grow up, no matter where they live, they return each year to the town, where Mazu remains the symbol of their home.
