Antique Door Lintel with Relief Carvings
Hebei, circa 1900
This sophisticated panel was made from beech and is in a soft, natural wood finish. It was fashioned in Hebei, a province in north eastern China, and would have been used for ornamenting an internal doorway or entrance of an affluent home. The panel is classically designed, featuring intricate relief carvings. The five women in the center are flanked by two floral patterns, all enclosed in a frame with two elaborate, fierce-looking beasts at each end. It's a perfect decorative piece for above sideboards or beds, or even entrances, as was its original purpose.
