The inspiration is the painting from Ming dynasty called The Peach Festival of the Queen Mother of the West. The painting is describing that on every year the third day of March of lunar calendar is the birthday of the Queen Mother. Not just commoners celebrate for this popular goddess, the goddess also invites other deities to her palace and share the special peaches, which is the longevity of life.
