Subject:Large Wood Seal - Translation Help Please
Posted By: Julie Wed, Mar 25, 2020 IP: 2601:243:2180:9290:2

Hello, I have a large wood seal with characters I'm unable to translate. Could I please get some assistance? Included is a photo of a character carved onto the top by the handle. Could it represent the carver? Thank you so much! Julie

The single character 上 on the top the square is a directional mark. This way up.

The characters of the seal are 烈聖宮寶璽 - the treasure seal of the Lie Sheng Temple.

Seal inscription,
烈聖宮寶璽 - *Liesheng (Martyr's) Palace Imperial Treasure Seal

*Liesheng Palace; Name of the palace next to Wenwu
(Man Mo) 文武廟 Temple in Hong Kong's antique market area on the Hollywood Road.

With regards,

I stand corrected.

'Palace' not 'Temple'.

Thank you, I Nagy

Is that the temple at the top of the long stairs from Central?
