“Chang E Flies to the Moon” is a widely known legend among the Chinese people. As the legend goes, Chang E’s husband, Houyi obtained the elixir of immortality from the Mother Queen of the West, but his wife secretly swallowed it. She became a fairy and flew up to the moon. According to some folk tales, after Chang E flew into the Moon Palace, she turned into a toad, an incarnation of the moon spirit, and pounded medicine in a mortar; however, most of the moon-palace mirrors made in the Tang Dynasty show a luxuriant osmanthus tree and the beautiful Chang E soaring into the sky, her long sleeves fluttering amid coloured ribbons and floating clouds. Besides, there is a white rabbit with a pestle pounding medicine and a jumping toad.
