Mount Hua, one of the Five Great Mountains of China, has a variety of small temples and other religious structures on its slopes and peaks. Atop the southernmost peak, there is an ancient Daoist temple, which may have served as an inspiration for the present ewer. Another possible afflatus may have been the legendary Chess Pavilion, which is also located on Mount Hua.
