Zhongli Quan, of military bearing, is the fifth immortal on the embroidered screen. He is characterized by his bearded face and the feathered fan he carries. Zhongli Quan makes his appearance whenever there is a message from the heavens to be conveyed to the mortal world. He is portrayed here beside a tiger, a force of good and the defender against terrestrial chaos. Tigers also represent wealth and power; in addition, legends tell of tigers carrying heroes to the heavens.
