Ink on paper, 76 x 36 inches (194 x 98 cm). According to the accompanying description on GAP, the artist painted this to mark the 70th birthday of his teacher, in a compositional approach known as “looking up at the mountaintop from the foot of the mountain”. The lone figure at bottom, who is doing so, likely represents the artist’s reverence for the accomplishments of his teacher.
