At a museum

I went to a university art museum the other day and saw this beautiful folding screen at the entrance. Elegant with a warm glow, it is decorated with beautiful carvings of flowers, scrolls, and in the centre of the left pane, a scholar. My guess is it was once in a study since in the lower part (not shown here), there is a carving of a desk as well. Beautiful, isn't it?

Hi Danne, welcome to HKDP!

Thanks everyone for your footprints...I decided to sneak this shot because the museum staff told me "I couldn't see what goes on downstairs at the entrance"...very nice of him. :-)
