Li Sao (Falling into Grief) #1:
By 白云立  Bai Yunli
離騷圖 #2 
(His father calls him) Divine Balance (based on) birth details (lines 5 & 8)

(00.42 - 01.41 of the Li Sao recording)

Qu Yuan's nickname apparently reflected that at the time of his birth the stars were in an auspicious alignment. The picture shows Qu Yuan's father holding what seems to be the traditional ritual tripod called a jue.
