Peach
The peach (桃 tao) is an important and very popular symbol in China, a sign of immortality in gods and longevity in humans. The most famous peaches of immortality can be found in the garden of the Taoist deity Xi Wangmu, the Queen Mother of the West. The latter is often accompanied by her two maids, the immortals Magu and He Xiangu, who also carry peaches with them. Moreover the god of longevity Lao Shouxing is also represented with a peach. In combination with a pomegranate and fingered citron (Buddha’s hand), the fruit symbolize the ‘Three Abundances’.
