Subject: Archer & Maiden hunting deer
Posted By: shedrick Sat, Feb 03, 2018 IP:

hi, gold ink on silk featuring an Archer & Maiden hunting a deer around Mt. Fuzi, approx:36 in. This is an awesome piece of art.I've had it for about 10 years. Can you tell me the period of this piece?

From the Ramayana (Bali and Java Indonesia, Hindu legend). Rama shooting the golden deer. Behind him is his wife Sita.

Google Ramayana for the whole story.

And definitely NOT mount Fuji. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
