Painted hanging scroll depicting a landscape scene. A bridge stretches across a stream which runs between some pine trees. Two men, one with a stick in hand, are standing on the bridge and talking. Mists cover a valley which winds up into the middle ground and background. Roofs of several houses are visible in the valley in the left middle ground.
