The greedy man drew many pictures, but they did not become real. Angrily, he said to Ma Liang, “If you draw some pictures for me and turn them to life, I will set you free.” Ma Liang got an idea. He agreed to the idea of the rich man. The rich man said, “Draw me a golden mountain.” Ma Liang drew a sea first. Then, he drew a golden mountain far away from the sea. The rich man got angry and said, “Draw a big ship quickly to reach the mountain.”
Ma Liang smiled quietly and drew a big ship. The rich man jumped into the ship. When the ship sailed to the middle of the sea, Ma Liang drew a large wave that destroyed the ship. The ship wrecked and the rich man never came back. Ma Liang went back to the village and went on painting for poor people.
