文物特色
      石盆位于未名湖南岸、临湖轩院前草坪上,为两株明代白皮松的底座。其形呈须弥座状,原为六面,后加至八面。上下枋饰万字纹,上下枭饰覆仰莲瓣,束腰饰佛八宝,圭角饰云纹。

 
历史溯源
      石盆应为清乾隆时期和珅淑春园临风待月楼之旧物,几百年来一直保护着这两株白皮松的根基,至今依然安静地守护着这片土地。
 
 
Distinguishing feature
      On the lawn in front of the Linhu House, south of the Weiming Lake, stand two stone pots, serving as the base for two lacebark pines of the Ming dynasty. Originally they had only six sides; the other two sides were a later addition.
History
      They are believed to be the relics of Heshen’s Shuchun Garden during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing dynasty. Over the centuries these two stone pots have kept the roots of the ancient trees in good condition, which still quietly guard this piece of land.
