Immortal riding a goose

Ohoe Tomb #4, 6th - 7th century
Ji'an, China

A Daoist immortal is riding a goose, in this closeup from the ceiling of Ohoe tomb #4 (previous page). Daoist figures are often painted in Goguryeo and Chinese tombs, since Daoist ideas about nature and immortality appealed to the hopes and wishes of the deceased.
