You are completely right! I forgot about 山.
The reason why the characters itself look a bit strange is because they are not written in the normal cursive script we would normally expect. Rather they are written in a form of the so-called seal script (Tenshotai 篆書体), which we would regularly find on seals. Outside of seals it was sometimes also used for headings as we can see on this print.
