Description:
Scroll. Illustrates the scenes at Yanji (Yen-chi, "Rock of Swallows") which include a rambling sequence of hills with small cottages; a temple and a mausoleum. A small path connects the scenes, showing some scattered travelers and pack mules; at the left a land mass juts out into water, on which there is a boat. A village in trees nestles on an island in the middle, connected to shore by a bridge.
