This consists of gesso which is a plaster over wood. The plaster in this case appears to be mud and straw which was then lacquered white and then incised with the designs. The color of the dried gesso is a bronzy, light brown. Over the years, the plaster has become chipped, but the overall look and appeal has not faded. There are figures on one side and the other side features flora and fauna. Generally not found in an off white background, the bronze colored impressions stand out, making for a rich and eye appealing statement in any number of settings. less
