On a field of blue, the cloisonné technique was used to apply colored enamel. In the background, wild geese fly above layers of mountains of differing heights. In the foreground, the vast landscape is covered with grass and mushrooms. There are numerous spotted deer in groups of twos and threes, each with its own unique pose, running, playing, and strolling, creating a sense of auspiciousness and happiness. There are also two gilded copper deer head handles on either side.
