24k Gold Leaf Lithograph
34" x 11" frame, wall mount. By Han Huang, Tang Dynasty. One of many famous paintings collected by Emperor Qian Long of the Qin Dynasty. For thousands of years, Chinese artists near the city of Nanjing have used pure gold for their meticulous works of art by painstakingly hammering the soft metal into a thin canvas. Once reserved for royalty, modern equipment makes these priceless pieces available to those of us born into common families. These famous art reproductions are thermally bonded onto a 98% pure gold base (24k certification enclosed). Mounted in a dark rosewood frame, white mat with metallic beveled edges, and a UV-plastic covering to protect the delicate gold from the elements. Each picture comes packaged in its own silk-lined brocade box.
