Maybe is Xi Wang-mu (西王母, Queen Mother of the West ). In "Classic of Mountains and Seas"《山海經》), you can find 3 passages about  Xi Wang-mu and 1 passages about her familiars Three Blue Birds (三青鳥)

〈西次三經〉:「玉山,是西王母所居也。西王母,其狀如人,豹尾虎齒而善嘯,蓬髮戴勝,是司天之厲及五殘。」
〈海內北經〉:「西王母梯几而戴勝,其南有三青鳥,為王母取,食在崑崙北。」
〈大荒西經〉:「西海之南,流沙之濱,赤水之後,黑水之前,有大山,名曰崑崙之丘。有神,人面虎身,有文有尾,皆白,處之。其下有弱水之淵環之,其外有炎火之山,投物輒然。有人戴勝,虎齒,有豹尾,穴處,名曰西王母。此山萬物盡有。

First passage is about Wang-mu's image and her power. She command plague, slaughter and retribution. 
(After, Chinese believe she also command the Death and Immortality.)

Second passage said looks like this art. she rest on a couch and wore decorations (shenˋ 勝, now is no idea, just guess it maybe image the power)。she had Three Blue Birds (三青鳥) to served her.

the last passage is about her domain and some image. Some ones are like the first, other are not. The Key word have "rad water" "black water" "white" and "volcano". In old time, white color and tiger are both symbol the west.

〈大荒西經〉:「有三青鳥,赤首黑目,一名曰大鵹,一名少鵹,一名曰青鳥。」

this passage is about Three Blue Birds, they have red head and black eyes , first named Big Yellowbird,  second named yang Yellowbird, and less named is Blue Bird. So the birds have three named three blue bird, but two birds looks like Orange, red and yellow pastel color.
