    I don't have a clue where we picked this up and I can't tell if it's new or old. Just found it among a stack of poster from 20 and 30 years ago.

    It looks like, perhaps, a wood block print. It is printed on very light, almost transparent paper/tissue with a type of laid finish.

    Any ideas anyone?

      This is a "temple rubbing" (similar to a woodblock print) from Thailand.

      Absolutely right, Artfoot! :-)
      Charcoal rubbed on rice paper.
      Google "Siam rubbing" images to see more.

      Here's an exact identification for your rubbing - https://www.harvardartmuseums.org/art/203093

      I should add that this only identifies the location where the rubbing was taken. Yours is nicely done but don't assume that it is 18th Century vintage. These are still being made.

      Thanks much folks. Very helpful.

      Wow, Artfoot, right on the money!

      It seems you can mark it as solved :-)
