The Northern Dynasties refer to the Northern Wei, Eastern Wei, Western Wei, Northern Qi, Northern Zhou and other dynasty regimes established successively in northern China at that time. Tuoba Tao, Emperor Taiwu of the Northern Wei Dynasty, believed in Taoism and could not help but write monuments. Therefore, the calligraphy on monuments in the Northern Dynasties was more colorful than that in the Southern Dynasties.

This stele is a work from the early Northern Wei Dynasty. The brushwork is vigorous and clumsy, and the structure is flat and square. It obviously retains some stroke characteristics of official script. It is similar to the "Er Cuan" of the Southern Dynasties. This stele is useful for studying the history of calligraphy in the Southern and Northern Dynasties, as well as the evolution of Chinese characters. History is of extremely important significance.
