    I've had this collection of rice paper stone rubbings of zodiac creatures from Korean mythology for 50 years. They've been folded in a file since I lived in Korea. The horned animal is the haetae, a guardian that protects from fire and disaster, Hence, its popularity near significant buildings in Seoul. The rooster, dog and tiger round out the set. I can't remember and have no documentation concerning the source - they've just traveled with me my whole adult life.

    These are unframed with the image at 16"h x 13" w. I'm not quite sure what I want to do with them, wall space is at a premium. Ironing, a sharp white matting and a black frame would make them stand out.

      Beautiful images. And special since you've had them a long time.
