The ‘Ying’ limestone is of vertical composition with a slight sway and small protrusions with an elliptical cavity under the shoulder and naturally accented throughout with a jagged, craggy surface. The stone rests on a Suzhou-style hongmu stand. The stone is deep grey with off white-coloured calcite veining and inclusions.
