Rubbing of a Qing dynasty stele titled “Safe and Sound, Wealth and Honour.” It is decorated with a peony in a vase and a ruyi scepter along with inscriptions and seals. The inscription on the upper right means “it is imperially painted by Empress Dowager Cixi [1835-1908]” and the inscription on the far left indicates the date as the sixteenth day of the eighth lunar month in the sixteenth year of the Guangxu reign. The stele was probably made after the painting depicted by the Empress Cixi in 1890.
