Leaf 2 This leaf is, perhaps, based on Du Mu's poetic line: The herdboy pointed to the distant Apricot Village. Han Tan's colophon reads: A thousand feet of red cliffs look like a sculptured flower of furong; In one glance, the long bridge joins adjacent ridges. Furthermore a wine shop stands in a bamboo grove; The fellow who bought some good wine is drunk on the eastern shore of the stream.
