The Woodpecker

I don’t know if you have ever heard about the legend of woodpecker, a story about a selfish tiny old woman who didn’t want to give her food to save a hungry guest. While in Chinese culture, woodpecker is more of the positive symbolic meaning, it’s a diligent hard worker, a kind helper in the forest, smart and with creative vision, full of knowledge and with a warm heart. Very interesting when I found out the very different symbolic meaning in different cultures!
