In Taoist mythology, the eight immortals are legendary characters who represent society through 8 social conditions (man, woman, old man, youth, beggar, common man, rich, aristocracy) and have succeeded in achieving immortality. Each of these eight figures has its own special qualities, symbolized by the presence of an attribute (sword, lotus flower, yugu, flower basket, cane, flute, jade plate, fan).
The motif was done in a Chinoiserie style using a layout reminiscent of toiles de Jouy.
