The Queen Mother of the West (Xi Wangmu) rides on a deer, holding the fungus of immortality. The scrolls hanging from her waist contain the secrets to achieving immortality. She is accompanied by a female attendant, who carries the peaches of immortality in a basket and the elixer of life in a gourd container by her side. Attributed to Zhang Lu.
