Inscription by Gao Jianfu reads, "Silver bank and autumn waters, jade-like swaying gracefully/ Frosty leaves toss red, going out to the vastness/ How many desires inscribed in a poem, and sent to the Liao Sea/ Only hoping with the flowing water, to go to his side." -- Selling Happiness, 2004
Gao Jianfu, 1879-1951 [Contributor]
