What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a batik image made in Taiwan. Pieces similar to this one were made in the second half of the 20th century. Horses are a common theme in Chinese art, representing courage and diligence.

The Chinese characters write in cursive appear to be: 石马 (shi ma), meaning “stone horse.” This is presumably the name of the image.

The Fair Market Value of this piece based on auction sales of similar batik artworks from Taiwan is between $30 and $50.
