Description

Two men (appear to be Chinese) standing under a sparse pine tree at the right in an isolated landscape; one figure appears to be pointing at a flowering bush at the left. Mountain in distant background. Identified as a depiction of the fable of two Buddhists changing rocks into swine during a famine. Mounted in a wooden fretwork frame and stand.
