This painting depicts deer wandering in the mountains and waters, drinking water or looking at each other, each with its own posture. “Deer” and “Lu” are homophones, implying official salary. The pine tree in the painting represents “longevity”, and the landscape is dotted with ganoderma lucidum and rare white deer, which are auspicious symbols. The whole painting is full of auspicious meanings. The green color of the picture is clean and bright. The painting of pine trees and rocks is very close to the background that the Qing palace painter Fang Cong added to Lang Shining’s painting of blue sheep, which shows the relationship between this painting and the court painting style of the Qing Dynasty.
