Subject:Wall Tapestry
Posted By: Don Fri, Jan 08, 2021 IP:


I would like to know what the translation of this wall tapestry is, and what is being depicted. It is approximately 4' x 5'. There are no tags or marks on the back of it. Any idea where its from or its age?

Thank you

It might be that it dates to the Republic era, because the use of "Prefecture" in Daiyuan was abolished at the beginning of that era.

With regards,
