Chinese Eight Immortals Paintings
The Eight Immortals Crossing the Sea as an auspicious painting implies the wish to exorcize evil spirits and avoid disaster with the aid of magic objects of the Immortals. - While the Eight Immortals were crossing the sea with their magic skills, their chatter and laughter disturbed the son of the Dragon King of the East Sea. The Dragon King’s son, coveting their magic objects, attacked the Eight Immortals. The Supreme Master noticed this, and hastened to intervene. The two parties made it up after the dragon prince apologized. Then they all went together to the birthday banquet of the Queen Mother of the Western Heavens.
