Inscription in niche 19, Yuanjue dong 圓覺洞 Anderl, Christoph


This photo shows an inscription that reads fushou 福壽 (good fortune and longevity) on the eastern end of the south face of the cliff in Yuanjue dong 圓覺洞, Anyue xian 安岳縣, Sichuan sheng 四川省. According to the modern explanatory inscription next to it, this is a reproduction of Chen Tuan 陳摶's calligraphy in Da e shan 大峨山. In the reign of Daoguang 道光 (1820-1850), the county magistrate saw the incription in Da E Shan and could not forget about it, so he had it copied and transcribed here.
