1. A liquid crystal display comprising:
a first substrate comprising a first insulating substrate, a gate wire extending in a first direction a first source wire extending in a second direction intersecting with the first direction, a pixel electrode with a contact portion and a main pixel electrode extending from the contact portion, and a semiconductor layer arranged under the first source wire and intersecting with the gate wire and bending under the first source wire so as to extend to below the contact portion; and
a second substrate arranged opposite the first substrate;
a liquid crystal layer comprising liquid crystal molecules between the first substrate and the second substrate;
wherein
the semiconductor layer is electrically connected to the first source wire on a first side of a position where the semiconductor layer intersects with the gate wire in the second direction and to the contact portion on a second side of the position,
the contact portion is arranged nearer the gate wire than the main pixel electrode,
the main pixel electrode extends from the contact portion in the second direction and is located nearer the second side than the first side, and
the contact portion is connected to the main pixel electrode only by a first portion of the main pixel electrode.
