The Amah Rock

on February 26, 2013

AmahRockThis amazing card comes from Nancy in the USA but actually shows Amah Rock in Hong Kong which has a fascinating legend behind it. Story has it that many years ago, a woman would carry her son to the top of the hill on her back to wait for her fisherman husband when he came back from fishing the oceans. Unbeknownst to her, he had died at see and would never return, but as a repayment for her faithfulness, the Sea Goddess turned her and her child to stone so that their spirits could eternally be together. Such a sweet story. And a lovely card!
