Signature: Lu Yanshao
Dated August 1978
In the spring of 1978, I was in Peking and traveled to the temples Tanzhe and Jietai. The pines and junipers posture in a strange and archaic manner. They are unique. In my life, I have never seen better. After I went back to the South, Chenyi asked me about the highlights of Peking. I painted this picture for one of his smiles.
