This is a handsome stone, warmly colored in a soft gray and marbled with white accents. The accents stem from an area of white midway up the stone's left edge that streak across both the front and back surfaces, diagonally, in a pattern reminiscent of lightning in a stormy sky. The top of the seal features a relief carving [high on the front, low on the back] of an elderly man, resting between his journeys, clutching his staff, surrounded and enveloped by the items he carries.
This old man is actually the god of longevity. He is recognized by his bald, elongated head, his long beard, and the wooden staff and peach he usually carries. This god symbolizes longevity and the peach he carries also represents this wish. His staff and gourds, which hold special elixirs, represent healing.
