The screen is made of Huanghuali wood, with stained ivory, jade, and xichi wood inlay against a blue-glazed background. Chicken-wing wood, in Chinese known as xichi mu or more commonly known as jichi mu, has a wood grain that strongly resembles a chicken wing (ji chi).   
  The stained ivory, jade and Chicken-wing wood have been carved into low-relief figures in a mysterious landscape with mountains, streams, bridges, clouds and pavilions. It is all carefully crafted into a magical world.   The screen is fixed on a Sumeru-shaped wooden stand, the feet of which are engraved with cloud patterns. The wood screen is a masterpiece among woodcarvings of the Qianlong period.
