An unusual Pith paper picture delicately painted with a scene from a dramatization of "The Death of Ma Su" who was a famous General under the command of Scholar, Inventor and Political and Military Strategist Zhu Ge Liang (181-234AD). This story is to be found in the historical novel the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and also in the Peking opera "Loss of Jieting". This picture was painted in China during the 19th Century, probably as one of a series of pictures, and is now mounted in a later frame. Condition: good - there are some splits and losses to the plain pith paper background but no damages to the painted area; there have been no repairs or restoration. Frame: 31.5cm (12.3inches) wide; 20.3cm (8inches) high.
