    Pretty cool piece you have there Moon, if I saw it at a sale I would not be able to leave without it, although I generally avoid Asian antiques due to so many counterfeits.

    I lived in Singapore for 5 years and feel in love with Asian art. This is absolutely stunning.

    JH, I personally cannot read it. And I am not exactly on friendly terms with my Japanese Mother who is trying to hurry us up on our departure of her house :( I have been packing and my oldest is out of her mind in acting up! I am having a tough time and want to curl in a dark hole.......Sorry for not answering...
    I showed it to her once...and she said that is was extremely old and rare. :)

    Hello! Your piece is actually an antique chinese print block, used to print books from it. You can notice the darkened surface of the area where the ink was applied to. You can check a similar piece here http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/16642176_chinese-wooden-printing-block
    A nice piece. Congrats!

    Hi there, I have some chinese printing blocks like yours. It's old I can assure you as the cost of reproduction would excess its market value. The carving style and content suggest it's from Qing dynasty, no doubt.

    Long story behind it, hope you enjoy.

    shrine, so is this a good example of woodblock print blocks?

    Hi moon, yes, a authentic piece of relic from old days. Chinese stopped making woodblock since mid 20c, Japanese and Korean did so around early 20c. The exception is Chinese government invested millions to restore some Buddhism printing blocks from Qing dynasty. Each piece costs them over $1.5k. Want to know Korean idea towards this kind of stuff? check out this:
