Many of the landscapes in Hefei Garden are handmade, including pagodas, stone bridges and copper reliefs. Among them, the materials used in the pagoda and stone bridge are local bluestone from Anhui province, while the copper plate reliefs hanging in front of the corridor are made of copper produced in Tongling, Anhui province. In terms of form, the content of the stone carvings are mainly lotus flowers, lions, dragons and phoenixes, unicorns, cranes and other objects with auspicious meanings. In terms of content, the reliefs show the story of Bao Zheng and the new look of Hefei.
