Mountains with dramatically towering peaks and deep gorges show travelers leading loaded mules over footbridges and mountain paths transporting trade goods over long distances. These trade routes are characteristic of Sichuan province (or Shu). This painting is among the largest produced by the Yuan studios in 18th-century Yangzhou to furbish the spacious residences of wealthy Yangzhou salt merchants or princely palaces.
