  • Description:
    The pines stand erect, the tall lake rocks stand on the flower terrace of Xumizuo, the red, white and pink purple peonies are planted in the stone gaps, and the precious flowers and stones compete for beauty. The Chinese people in the painting sit upright, ready to listen to the zither, and burn incense on the desk. The smoke curls up in the shape of a crane. It matches with the long pine trees in the background, which has the meaning of “pine age and longevity”. The boy servants either hold the zither in front of them, or stand beside them with feather fans, or hold boxes or make tea. At the rear, there are lacquer boxes for picking rhinoceros, porcelain bowls for tea and coral tree pots for playing. The elegant style of leisure life of literati and refined scholars is demonstrated through the display of utensils.
