Young Blood Illustration - Series

Illustrator: Lu Xu

When an old man has a big family, is long-lived, and dies without any pain, his funeral is more like a happy event than a sad one. This series of illustrations shows the process of a happy funeral: dress in normal clothes, play music, throw rice, eat a square meal...the event is not only for the death, but also for the celebration of life.
