      They are really great prints manitou.
      I wonder where they are from? I don't think Chinese because of the style of clothing etc. I'm thinking further south west, around Cambodia? Just guessing here :)

      Script looks like Chinese and the Buddhist figures as well. Very nice collection.

      thanks Congcu -wasn't sure about the language and the buddhist figures though obvious didn't help me .I'll see if I can spend sometime researching Chinese woodblocks too .I'll keep enjoying them anyway!

      Google translate on the bottom picture says

      Such as the Lord Bieguang Pai Yuan Shang Xi Menan
      Tai Chunhe*
      Seven years old
      Mid-April Twenty
      Three-day Jiawu construction
      Yuan Songdi Liu Bao Nan

      Translate doesn't work great, but think it has something to do with tea?

      "The 17th year of Daihe reign of the Great Wei (Northern Wei)...." which is 494 CE. All three rubbings are in the style of the Northern Wei figures from this time period. Most likely from Longmen Grottos near Luoyang. Many of these rubbings were sold, which suggests that they were not taken directly from the original stones.

      The lines on the edges note the names of the donors who donated the carving of the Boddhisattva assembly.

      Thank you for the information which I will have to use Google to appreciate and fully understand- hopefully.
