Artist Tani Bunchō painted this lush blue-green image in a mountain pavilion during wintertime. He inscribed it with two lines of a poem reading: “the stone cliff of layered rocks is extremely high. Waterfalls tumbling from the skies reverberate in the clouds.” The scholarly figure and attendant carrying his zither set the location among the majestically soaring mountains of China.
