《蓬萊仙境》張大千

The Emperor asked Li Shaoweng, how to get to the floating mountain.
‘First, offer to Taiyi(太一); only then can one ascend to the heavens. Only after ascending to the heavens can one reach Penglai(蓬萊).’

Li Shaoweng from Qi, aged two hundred, had the appearance of a youth. His creations in various forms were all effective. The Emperor greatly believed in him, appointed him as the General of Wencheng, and treated him as an honored guest. Inside the Ganquan Palace, he painted images of various gods including Taiyi for worship. Shaoweng said: ‘First, offer to Taiyi; only then can one ascend to the heavens. Only after ascending to the heavens can one reach Penglai.’

《漢武帝外傳》記:「齊人李少翁,年二百歲,色若童子。作諸方衛,皆有驗。帝甚信之,拜為文成將軍,以客禮之。於甘泉宮中畫太一諸神像祀之。少翁雲:先致太一,然後可得升天,升天然後可至蓬萊。」
