About

Each panel is carved with the motif of a bunch of flowers issuing from a vase, accompanied by Taihu rocks. On one panel an inscription in regular script reads, 'fugui pingan' (‘richness and peacefulness’). A four character phrase in regular script, 'jixiang ruyi' (‘auspiciousness - as you wish’), is carved on the other three panels.
