For sale

This seems vintage and has something to do with ancient weapons and could be Japanese. There is an animal or a personage or deity at the top of the stand and a few marks. It look like silk or maybe parchment or paper of some type. It measures 33.5 by 24 inches. I wish I knew more.

OK, Delia. I uploaded two images.
