Mirrors in China were associated with Daoist mysticism as well as being a functional object in the house. Many mirrors are decorated with mystical scenes of Daoism. This mirror shows Xiwangmu and Dongwangfu, Queen Mother of the West and King Father of the East, the most popular scene to be found on mirrors of the Han dynasty (206BC-AD220).
