Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake (平湖秋月) reflects the artist Ding Zhengxian’s accomplishment in woodcut art. The artwork shows broad vision due to proper perspective and composition, which reminds people of the verse of Westlake - “The best time to enjoy the moon is in autumn”(四时月好最宜秋). The willows and pavilion beside the bridge are in tranquility, with hazy causeway and moon in the background and ripples reflecting the moonlight, creating peaceful and delightful feelings.
