Mount Liang is well known as the stronghold of the 108 legendary Song Dynasty heroes of the classic Chinese novel, "Water Margin".
Lin Chong was the Lance Instructor of the 800,000 Imperial Guards, while Yang-Zhi (Yang Jian) was an antagonist of the Imperial Court.
In 1886, Yoshitoshi produced a vertical diptych depicting Lin Chong standing in the snow, with Mount Liang in the background.
