Inscription: "Above the sea, in a dense wood, there are the big rocks; in front of his lodge he prayed for a life long-lasting as the Southern Mountains. While the spring breeze blew over brush and ink he firmly studied calligraphy; sixty years have gone by, and his hair is not graying yet.
"The venerable Mr. Cunshan crossed the [age of] sixty in the winter of 1702. In 1703 in the fourth month, he charged me with painting this picture. For the method of texture strokes, I employed the style of Wuzhen and Juran. Written by Mojing and Daoren."
