    A series of illustrations about a legend of Fig boys.
    The Fig boys are a group of teenagers with Fig head. They are no gender. Their leader, the Fig boy ii, wears a crown that is made by thorns and branches. it covers many multicolored moth or beetles, looks heavy and cruel. Only his sailor suit with a long long Scarf which always covers lots of beautiful insects. This inspiration comes from the Great Chinese female writer Eileen Zhang’s quote: Life is a beautiful gown that is crawling all over by fleas.
    Sometimes they are aggressive and violent, and sometimes they are fragile and lonely.
    sometimes they will sing a holly song for celebrating a new life coming.
    But sometimes they will fight each other and eat the losing party.
    Life is cruel, their legend is still going on...
