Fan Qi's painting on leaf one may be inspired by Tang dynasty poet's Li Bai's line: A small boat has sailed through ten thousand layers of hills.

Wang Wu's colophon facing the painting reads:
A narrow path coiling, winds across rock foundations;
Old vines and ancient trees meet the sunset's slanting rays.
Unaware that my small boat has gone so far,
By the time it reverses its oars, the green mountains will be half-covered with clouds.
