    Hello Friends.
    I bought this just this afternoon. It's mysteries have got me all in a swoon.
    It appears to be quite old, maybe antique, and is a hand hammered copper relief surface of multiple figures, ( Chinese? ), beautiful trees, monkeys, a snake, people waving swords around, what may be a religious figure, or a revered figure,..........it's amazing! The trees are gorgeous!
    It measures approximately 9" inches x 12+1/2" inches, and is framed in a vintage, but not antique, frame.
    At first, because of the intricate design and fine surface, I thought it must be cast. But under a loupe I can clearly see that it's a hand worked, shaped, surface, and it's incredible!
    I was hoping that someone might recognize this type of work, know the story that it depicts, and the country of origin.
    Any looks, likes, loves, and comments welcome.
    Thanks,
    Tony.

      Asian Buddhist theme, could be any number of countries, all elements are symbolic and represent something. Unusual.
