The story of the 8 horses of Mu originates comes from a historical romance about Mu, 5th Emperor of the Zhou dynasty (1023-983 BC), who wished to become immortal by visiting the heavenly paradise and tasting the peach of immortality. He was taken on this journey by the charioteer Zaofu and his eight horses.
