A person mounted on a horse can be seen crossing a bridge over a river among mountains. Mountains among clouds seem to fade away far in the distance.
At the place where mountain chains converge, I am reminded of a landscape I have visited in the past. [Painted on the occasion of] recalling an earlier visit to Mt. Hua, in winter of the Guichou year. [Signed] Junbi.
Adam and Eve Lamenting over the Corpse of Abel, plate 6 from History of the First Parents of Man, set of six prints
This engraving is a vertical format. Dominating the foreground are three figures on a slight hill with a large tree. In front of the tree is the corpse of Abel (a strong young man with flowing cloth around his waist) with his head in the shadows. Kneeling over him are Adam and Eve. Adam, a muscular older man with a white beard, clutches his hands together and leans toward his dead son. Eve, covered only from the waist down, throws her arms out in the air above her son and moves towards him on her knees. The tree behind them has a sturdy trunk that splits into three heavy branches and these limbs echo the placement of Eve's back and right arm. On the right is a road leading to a background scene.In the far background Cain and Abel are shown making offerings to God on altars, with Abel’s offering rising higher than Cain’s. In the middle ground along the road, Cain is shown raising a weapon to kill Abel. At the bottom of the work are four lines of text and a signature.

This is a black and white photograph showing a rocky outcropping with boulders and brush vegetation set agains a hazy scene of buildings and roads below. On the right are the rooftops of houses clustered at the base of the hillside and on the left are a group of laid foundations for a housing development. In the distance below are roads and buildings.
This ink, gouache, and watercolor painting depicts a stone bridge with three rounded arches standing over a meandering river. Five figures stand in a group on the bridge’s right side. There is a sort, shrubby tree in the lower right corner and a small protruding structure in right center.
This is a colorful abstract print with geometric shapes in blue, yellow, green and red outlined in black. There are also three white areas with black line drawings that depict a plant in a flower pot and two cypress trees in the bottom section and a landscape with mountains and a yellow moon in the upper right portion.
Cluster of trees is viewed from the ground up perspective, giving the viewer a sense of being on the ground looking up with the photographer. There are two groups of trees on either side with a strip clear sky in between them.
