The inkstone is rectangular in shape, as red as a pig’s liver. The spectrum of the inkstone cloud is the end stone of the Song Laokeng. The upper left corner of the inkstone is missing. The deep depression of the inkstone head is about 0.8cm long. The inkstone pool is shaped like a bow. The two character seal script “Xuanhe” is paved at the edge of the inkstone forehead. The character “He” has not been completely peeled off, and the left and right edges of the inkstone are carved with sixteen characters, many of which are indistinct. On the right, there is “The Chinese character in the middle is warm, moist and clear”. The lower part of the Qing Dynasty may be the word “He”, but it is incomplete. On the left, there is only the word “Wu Ya”, and there is also a lack of water near the Ya. The edges of the inkstone wall are carved with “Eight Man Di Gong Tu”. No matter the characters, landscapes, and their moods are very vivid, but there are also many unclear points. The four corners of the compound hand are broken. The central part is hollow and carved with two coins. The first one is carved with eight trigrams, and the next one is carved with twelve stars. All of them are regular script. The circumference is engraved with a poem written by the emperor. The title of the poem is “Emperor Qianlong Wu Shuyu”. Two seals: “Bide”, “Langrun”. “Wushu” was in 1778, the 42nd year of Qianlong’s reign in the Qing Dynasty.
