It is an ink-washed painting. The painting reflects the natural environment of the nine peaks. Peaks undulate among an expanse of water. Dong Qichang lived in the capital some 2,000 miles away from his hometown.

He often missed the landscape of his hometown and longed for the leisure in the peaks and rivers. The painting reflected his feeling in that period. The Shanghai Museum now has the piece in its collection.
