Photographer's Note

Some of the bas relief partition panels inside Chinese Temples and museums are exquisite and very artistic. This one depicts warriors in a typical Chinese garden. It appears to be a copper or bronze bas relief. Perhaps it depicts the invasion of Yangzhou (then Ming) by the Manchus (Qing) in 1645 AD? Or the brave but futile defence of the city? I've also seen porcelain, wooden and mother of pearl panels here and there such as in Tongli. The panels act as dividers between rooms, or for more privacy.
