The fan in the center is the emblem of the Chief god of the eight immortals 'Chung-Li Ch'uan', by which it is said that he can
revive the souls of the dead by waiving the fan above them. Here we see the fan passing over, the symbols for old age and moon.
An allusion to the harvest moon, or the late stages of our life. The fan overcomes old age, and in a Taoist twist to the design,
the owner of the rug is not just wished a long life, but invokes the powers of the universe to grant it.
