Agate representing a Longevity Peach - China Late 19th

Peach is the most loaded fruit in symbol of the history of all of China. In ancient China, the branches of the peach were used to hunt demons because it was given exceptional powers. Fishing is surely the best known of all fruits symbolizing immortality in China and is a recurring element of Chinese legends. The oldest reference that is alluded to is a poem written by the poet Zhang Hua, dating from the third century. As its name suggests, longevity peach gives the one who eats it, eternal youth and immortality. It is systematically found in ancient China, feng shui or even Taoism. Only maturing once every 3 thousand years, the celestial peach tree is the object of all the desires of mere mortals. One of the best-known legends is undoubtedly that of the Monkey King, who was upset at not having been invited to the banquet of the Queen Mother, entered the Kun Lun mountain garden and consumed all the celestial peaches. of the tree of life.
