EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases "The Eight Immortals Crossing the Sea" in 1922, a revered Taoist legend that holds great significance in Chinese culture. The image depicts a group of male figures, known as the Eight Immortals, embarking on a journey across the vast Bohai Sea. These mythical beings are believed to reside on five islands within this sea and possess extraordinary powers. The composition beautifully captures the essence of teamwork and collaboration as these immortals navigate their way through the ocean. Their boat glides gracefully over the water's surface while various animals accompany them on their voyage, symbolizing harmony between humans and nature. This artwork is an illustration from E. T. C. Werner's book "Myths and Legends of China" published by George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd in London, Calcutta, and Sydney in 1922. It serves as both an educational resource and a testament to China's rich cultural heritage.
