Carved Relief Panel with Battle Scene
Shanghai, circa 1860
This exquisite panel in detailed relief was crafted as part of a room divider in Shanghai towards the end of the nineteenth century. Made from elm wood, the panel is masterfully carved, depicting a clash between mounted figures in armour at its centre and, at each side, a ritual bronze vessel. The high-level of skill of artistry shown in the deep carvings is typical of the work carried out for affluent homes, conveying the owner's power and high standing.
