We bought this temple rubbing while visiting a small temple. There are many opportunities to buy these while you are visiting various temple complexes and also in Siem Reap. The paper has a high relief because the carved sandstone panels are beautifully carved, with intricate detail. The bare breasted carvings frequently have a polished look in this region from all the caresses!
Rather than put her behind glass, I am thinking on stitching rubbed fabric panels to the top and bottom and then hanging with bamboo rods.
The colour is actually gold as in the first photo.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
