An old hermit sits on a tiger skin in front of a rock cave that serves as his home. He holds a prayer cord in his right hand. A student waves him cool with a fan of peacock feathers. Two courtiers have sat down before the hermit. One plucks a stringed instrument, the other claps their hands together. The bright blue and purple painted gnarled rocks stand out sharply against the gold background, which fades upwards into blue and gold streaks.
