For permission or reproduction for this image, use the photographic application and guidelines here.
Manila colored scroll with black and off-white tomb rubbing on most of the scroll which is rolled on the top with a long narrow piece of wood and on the bottom w/ a much heavier and thicker round, black rod. The picture is of one elderly man w/long beard and fingernails walking w/a cane, in traditional dress. Bamboo leaves (grasses & rocks) in the foreground & background. There are 5 lines of Chinese characters (1 line) of writing in the lower right hand corner. The upper right hand corner has 2 lines and the lower left hand corner has a chop containing Chinese characters, perhaps the artist's signa- ture. The actual rubbing is on manila colored paper which appears to have fabric glued on the sides to frame it or provide a more substantial backing. Stone rubbing dampened paper pressed onto tomb stone and dried, ink is spread on raised surfaces with brush (Things Chinese 220).
