Subject:Need help Identifying this rubbing? woodblock print?
Posted By: BRaff Thu, Feb 16, 2017 IP: 73.93.141.134

can someone tell me anything about this piece of art it is about 5' in length and 2 1/2' in height. It looks like a rubbing or a wood block print. it is on a very fine hand made paper of some kind possibly rice paper. Also included are two chops a translation of each would be amazing. I bought this piece at a garage sail in san francisco about 10 years ago.

It looks like a rubbing of a bas-relief panel, probably on a tomb or sarcophagus.

I think the large seal refers to a collection of objects from Six Villages. I'll look again later.

Well first off thank you for the response. I have been trying to find out about this piece through periodic research for 10 years with no success on my own. Any info no matter how insignificant is greatly appreciated. Things like what is it depicting who are the characters. Its chinese right? I'm a novice when it comes to asian art research/mythology. what kind of chops are those? again I super appreciate you/anyone taking time out of your day to respond.
