The souvenir sheet(s/s) comprises three stamps, one with a denomination of NT$5 and the other two with NT$25 each. The design of the souvenir sheet follows:
Painted on a long scroll, Nine Elders depicts a scene from a party on Mt. Hsiang during Tang Emperor Wuzong’s reign in 845 A.D. The party’s host, Tang poet Bai Ju-yi, had retired to the mountain. He and his eight guests were all well over 70 years of age.
The se-tenant strip of three stamps features a garden. From left, the individual stamps respectively show guests who are absorbed in a game of chess (NT$5), conversing while strolling or dancing with flower in hair (NT$25), or reading book(NT$25). The color palette of the painting is elegant; the lines of the trees, the boulders, and the figures’ clothes are flowing; and the expressions of the figures are vivid and natural. The painting’s Shangri-La-like setting is beautiful and secluded. Large pines sway and lush green bamboos stand tall. The painting is unsigned but thought to be painted by Liu Song-nian of the Song Dynasty.
