The painted ink image shows two men at the center with an angular rock behind them to the right, a tree right-of-center, and an arched opening left-of-center. The grey rock has holes in it. The tree has black leaves. The arched opening is white all around and has a small fence and greenery through it. The man on the right is old and sitting facing left on a white bench and holding a small, flat grey object up to his face. He is wearing a loose, white robe and a small grey hat. He has a black mustache and beard. The man in the center is standing and facing the old man. He is holding a stack of flat, grey objects wrapped in white cloth in front of his chest. He is wearing a long, light blue shirt and white pants. His hair is black and long enough to cover his forehead. There are two vertical rows of Chinese writing in black ink to the left with a small, red symbol at the bottom.
