The woman is playing a game in which arrows are shot into a vase with a narrow neck. On the back of the screen a quote from a Tang dynasty (618–907) poet reads:

To the Master, joyous and deeply grateful is
She to serve and to follow, as though two
Suns are illuminating her saints and ancestors
Inscription: An inscription is inscribed on the back of the screen, and reads:

"Rejoicing at the profound grace in keeping me in attendance
I have served two sagacious emperors in succession."

This is a quote from a Tang-dynasty poem by Shen Quan Qi.

The square seal reads: le'er zhiming (enjoy life and know your destiny)

書名:《全唐诗》

[南方歸去再生天, 内殿今年異昔年。
見辟乾坤新定位, 看題日月更高懸。
行隨車輦登仙路, 坐近爐煙講法筵。]
自喜深恩陪侍從, 兩朝長在聖人前。
澹雲主人
(This is a quote from a Tang-dynasty poem by Shen Quan Qi 沈佺期.)
(square seal) 樂天知命 (enjoy life and know your destiny)
