What does this mean?

Hello John,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be a Thai relief rubbing on paper. The print appears to depict a battle scene from the "Mahabharata," an Indian epic. These types of prints are also known as Thai Temple rubbings. However, that may be misleading at times because not all of these print were taken from a temple setting. The prints have been produced and reproduced throughout the centuries and are very collectible. They are usually composed of charcoal or graphite on a thin rice paper. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of this Thai relief and other comparable examples to the object. Thank you and please take care.
