PAST COLLECTION ITEM
Chinese ink on paper rubbing of Wu Family Shrine
This stone rubbing on paper was made from the Wu family shrine stone relief carvings (part of a cemetery complex in Jiaxiang county, Shandong province, Eastern Han dynasty, 206 BC to AD 220). The exact age is not known, but this piece was brought to San Francisco from China in the late 1950's. The frame is about 5 ft x 4 ft in size and has silk backing/border. I think this unusual piece of history has significant value because there are no comparable items available online. When I searched online I could find something similar only in university museums and databases.
