五子愛蓮 : 楊柳青版画

娃娃畫。五子,寓意多子,多男子。奪蓮,也是一種奪標游戲。蓮,又有連生貴子之意。舊時以多子為貴。多子就是多治生理的人,好發家致富。實含舊時代人們的美好嚮往和要求。 --《中國楊柳青木版年畫》 (p.112)

It is a happy, hilarious scene depicting five children trying to seize seed pod of the lotus during the lotus harvest season. It expresses the joy of the people during harvest. -- China Yangliuqing woodblock new years pictures (p.137)
