Thank you for your help once again. I knew the company just wanted to know the artist. I see that the other reply left by someone else didn’t think to kindly about me posting. But I was not worried about the value, only in knowing a little more about its history while trying to learn about Asian art. I feel it is important to learn and preserve the history of all arts and cultures especially an Asian culture that spans so many years and presented us with so many thought provoking and awe inspiring pieces of work. Just the fact that you take time out of your life to help others understand and help them appreciate their art speaks wonders about the type of person that you are thank you again

Regards
Richard,
