|The Dream of the Red Chamber begins its narrative by introducing and modifying the traditional myth of Nu Wa Patches up the Sky (女媧補天). This paper interprets this myth, connecting it to the novel’s structure construction and the figure design about the novel’s two principals. First, it is analyzed that the sky repairer in the myth, Nu-wa, implies goddess worship. Second, the eschatological implication of the repairing-heaven action is discussed, relating to the tragedy of Jia Family’s declining destiny and the futile effort of Wang Xi-fong & Jia Tan-chuen’s trying to rescue this fate. Third, the (self-created) myth of one abandoned stone among those built to repair heaven is carefully analyzed in relation to the figure design of Jia Bao-yu. Last, two myths of Crimson Pearl and E-huang & Nu-ing are analyzed in relation to the figure design of Lin Dai-Yu.
