It consists of twenty-eight Chinese characters calligraphy, pronounced ‘yue luo wu ti shuang mai tian, jiang feng yu huo dui chou mian, gu shu cheng wai han shang shi, ye ban zhong sheng dao ke chuan’.
This phrase originates from a poem written by Zhangji, a famous poet living in ancient Tang Dynasty. When he failed the palace examination and came back home, he wrote this great poem which is everlasting. Suppose he had succeeded his palace examination, could he have written such a poem which enjoys great popularity, even at present?

Mooring by the Maple-Bridge at Night
Zhang Ji (767-830)
the crows crying, the moon lost in the frost-sky,
Asleep I feel sad with the maples in fishing light
Outside Gusu the Cold-Hill Temple stands upright,
Her bell tone reaching my boat at mid-night.
