Cultural Treasures of Tunhuang Caves, Ten Chinese Color Prints
Ten vintage Chinese art color prints from the Tunhuang Caves in China are copied from the cave murals which date from the 4th Century. A printed historical explanation is included.
Each print, measuring 5-1/2 inches by 3-5/8 inches, is identified on its reverse in 4 languages and dated 1952.
All beautifully colored prints are in excellent vintage condition, without stains, creases or fading. They are accompanied by a 1-page history (in English, French, Greek, German and Chinese) of the Tunhuang Cave murals and the civilization that produced them.
The original faded and slightly worn paper sleeve which holds them bears an inscription in ink indicating that the set was a gift from a Chinese student to an American professor.
