Seller: hadjibaba2rbg (3,182) 100%, Location: Cary, Illinois, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 361581350854 This listing is for an early Thai / Thailand / Hindu , thought to be 18th Century but most probably much earlier than that , gouache / guache painting on paper, Possibly a Manuscript Illustration , Framed and mounted in as shown condition. Subject seems to be very complex for my understanding. Not sure if who the green beast is supposed to be Ramakian or other , with a chisel in one hand and hammer in the other, in the sky, going at whatever the raised object is. While people of different color skin , some pale, some pink, and some other colors. One with a bat in hand beating ? another while others are holding him, and other scenes. Rather bizarre! Possibly some kind of Depiction of various Hindu gods battling demons? or possibly angels and demons if you have any additional information about this item, please let me know. Painting / paper has loss from what appears to be a previous fold mark. Framed in a gilt frame with the red / rust silk and gilt liner with back sealed. It was covered with cellophane at one point instead of glass, which only remnants remain. A glass replacement is in order. Not sure of age but definitely antique and not an attempt to make poor copies for commercial market. I see it to be from 18th Century at the very least and would not be surprised if it is from15th -16th Centuries even earlier. Very devious. Very Unusual .
