Wood screen with figures carved on of stone. Black painted backdrop with landscapes painted in various colors. Very ornate and delicate. Not in very good condition but still beautiful and a ton of carved stone on each panel. Women carved out of stone and painted. Chinese characters carved in some of the stones as well.
