I have a beautiful framed rubbing of Hindu Goddesses from a Thai Temple.

This was a popular form of mid century art work in the 1960s and 70s

The artist would take rice paper and "rub" a pastel across the relief to make a copy of the stone carvings in the Hindu Temples in Thailand.

The piece has three figures (many of these only have one).

One is playing a musical instrument, one is holding a clay pot and the third (lowest picture) seems to be clapping it's hands to the music.

The frame was severely damaged, as was the original matt.

We sanded and repainted the vintage frame with it's original black and gold color scheme.

The blemishes and "patina" can still be seen under the paint which ads to it's authenticity.

The entire piece was disassembled, cleaned and a new acid free back matt and surrounded matt (matched to the ink in the rubbing) were added. In addition, a new paper back and hangers and wire were all put in on March 12, 2023.

The piece is lovingly restored and ready to hang in your home or office!

Dimensions of the entire piece are:

20.75 inches wide
26 inches tall

Dimensions of the rubbing within the matt are:

19.5 inches tall
14.25 inches wide

Priced to go at $185!!
