COMMENTS
The eight Daoist Immortals were known as 'shape shifters', travelling through time and the elements, obeying the Tao universal laws, not human laws. They lived an unconventional life, and are nearly always represented looking disheveled in appearance - a sign of their independence and original living, strangely unworldly with rough-looking and their gowns unkempt and barefooted. Because of his great skill at magic, RI TEKKAI, was able to free his soul from his body and aid and meet others in the celestial realm. He is represented as a lame beggar carrying a bowl of water. The gourd, symbolising longevity and the ability to ward off evil, has a cloud emanating from it. The cloud represents a dragon, depicted as a formless shape. The gourd represents also helping the needy and relieve the distressed.
