Stone screens are located in the east of north edge of WeiMing Lake. Every of them is a scenery while four of them are linked to a whole. The words on them are two pairs of couplets written by Qianlong. Characters are comely and natural. The screens have lotus leaf edges which make them so dedicate.
The Stone Screens were relics of Yuanmingyuan. The poem described the scene of painted boat. After Yuanmingyuan was fired, they were buried in the disorderly grass until found and placed on the edge of WeiMing Lake.
