In Daoist mythology, the Eight Immortals are a band of legendary gods each with a unique tool or ability. Lu Dongbin leads the group comprised Cao Guojiu, He Xiangu, Li Tieguai, Zhang Guolao, Lan Caihe, Han Xiangzi and Zhongli Quan. The bowl depicts a scene from the Ming legend, "The Eight Immortals Cross the Sea" in which the Immortals have to transverse an ocean to reach the Conference of the Magic Peach by employing their particular tools and skills. The subject is a reminder of the Chinese moral, to use your own ability to achieve a common goal.
Compare with a pair of similar bowls formerly in the Edward T. Chow Collection, sold in Hong Kong on 19 May 1981
