Art Illustrating Guqin Melodies
Illustration for the qin melody Yu Hui Tushan
(Emperor Yu's Meeting at Mount Tu)

Anonymous
禹會塗山圖
 

At the Temple of Emperor Yu (Yu Miao) in Shaoxing, China, I bought this ink imprint from a stone engraving. No one could tell me where the original stone is. In the lower left is a stele with the name Great Yu on it. The rubbing seems to show the happy results of his labors, with the people in the center paying homage to him.
