Steps to immortality

Interesting fact: one of the steps she took to become immortal was eating ground mica.

Chinese people call her a fairy. She is the only one of the eight immortals who is a woman, He Xiangu. In this statue she holds peonies instead of her traditional lotus flower (this statue is in a peony garden).

The tall, new apartment buildings are reducing her dramatic presence. It was hard to get an angle where she and the steps really stood out.
