Subject:About a porcelain plaque with a monk beside a dragoon over troubled waters
Posted By: Luciano Mon, Jan 13, 2020 IP: 193.204.90.105

Hello,
I have the porcelain plaque you may see in the attached pictures: I suppose a monk beside a dragoon over some troubled waters. There is also an inscription and two marks. I am writing you hoping to know the meaning of this painting and also of the writing and I hope in your expert and so kind help.
Thanks a lot and best regards,
Luciano

Inscription,
鉢以将降龍
傳來法正宗
有人持榔粟
Dragon descended to the bowl
and brought the law of the true teaching,
Others brought some palm millet

Colophon,
於此足温恭  - With the deepest respect
所城     - At Suocheng
Small seal,
卒      - Cu
Big seal,
乾隆年製   - Made under the reign of Qianlong
(Apocryphal mark !)

With regards,

Dear I.Nagy,
Thank you so much for your great help: as usual, you are very kind.
I would have only a last question: which is the meaning of the small seal 卒 (Cu)? Google translator says Soldier...
Thank you again and best regards,
Luciano

Dear Luciano,
The character 卒 (Cu / Tsu) does have a meaning of
"to finish, to complete". In this case could be translated "Done"

With regards,
I.Nagy

Your plaque looks to be painted either during or shortly after the republic period.
Said detail is OK. Not great but alright for the period.
