This is an artwork depicting a scene with two main figures; one person is riding a white, spotted deer, elegantly adorned with red flames sprouting from its head, signifying it may not be an ordinary animal. The rider is wearing traditional Asian attire, predominantly in red with intricate patterns. To the right, there is another standing person, bearing a significant amount of facial hair, garbed in a red and beige robe with circular patterns, holding a uniquely shaped maroon object with dots on their back. The background features various green-toned bamboo plants and a sinuous mountainous terrain, contributing to an otherworldly, serene landscape that evokes a sense of ancient Eastern mythology. The colors are rich yet have a soft, antique quality, suggesting the piece is of a certain age. A faint halo-like disc appears behind the rider, indicating a possible spiritual or sacred importance of the figure on the deer. The art is bordered by a decorative red frame, enhancing its traditional aesthetic.
