This piece is different from most of the "black laquered" plaques I have run across.
The "shell" 3 dimensional plaques with similar depictions, usually are laid on top of wood...this piece has the cut shell actually INLAID into the wood...it features a pair of Chinese women aproaching some sort of "landing platform " at a Pagoda site ....it also has birds, foreground trees, and watercrests...the shells give off a wo derous irredescence when viewed at differing angles too..splendid!
