託身於月,是為蟾蜍Flying to the Moon to become a Toad

1250888_1347718780本文文獻部分取材自: 中秋話「月」—漫談中國古代月神話

《周易.繫辭上》曰:「懸象著明莫大乎日月。」日、月可能是人類最容易觀察到的自然天體,仰則能見。其中,月雖不若太陽般燦爛奪目而充滿能量,然其寧靜陰柔的形象、朔望盈虧的變化,往往更能激起了人們無限地想像。東漢王充《論衡》:羿請不死藥於西王母,羿妻嫦娥竊以奔月,託身於月,是為蟾蜍。20110320113144130_1752-1

art0000320389「月中有蟾」的說法,也並非中國所獨有,這樣的說法亦普遍流傳於世界上許多原始民族的神話中。如所羅門群島的土著將月亮看作是隻蟾蜍的化身;北美印第安人認為月亮是隻肚裡裝滿水的蟾蜍。.1972年長沙馬王堆一號漢墓出土
通長205厘米馬王堆一號漢墓T型這幅帛畫的主題“引魂升天”帛畫右上角繪一輪紅日,日中有一隻黑色的鳥,應為“金烏”。其下有一扶桑樹,枝葉間掛有八個小太陽。左上角繪一彎新月,月上有一隻口銜流雲的蟾蜍,還有一隻玉兔。月下有一女子雙手托月,似在飛舞,應為嫦娥奔月。蟾蜍經常是中華玉文化中的主題。本文試圖用春秋玉蟾蜍, 明代劉海戲金蟾, 清代翠玉母子蟾蜍珮加以闡述。According to On the Balance to the Thought on Nature   by Wang Chun of Eastern Han Dynasty, Yi( husband of Chung-Er)  asked for immortal medicine from Goddess of the West, his wife Chung-Er stole the medicine and  flew to the moon to become a toad. On the left corner of the Han Dynasty fabric painting unearthed in 1972, a toad with a cloud motif in the mouth was decorated. Besides the toad, stood Chung-Er holding the moon with both hands.
