THE EIGHT CHINESE IMMORTALS
[Han Xiangu (Han Xiangzi)]
Han Hsien-tzu is the Patron Saint of Musician. His emblem is the flower basket and he represents cultured class. He is said to be the nephew of the Tang Dynasty statesman and scholar Han Yu. Han Hsien-ku wandered the country charming the birds and the beasts with his music. Without a sense of the value of money, he used to scatter it on the ground if it ever was given to him. Han Hsien-ku has the power to make flowers grow and blossom instantaneously. He is often shown with a flute symbolizing harmony.
