Across the top, the character on the upper left reads as either "up to" or "Dafoe" and the one on the upper Right translates to "Blessing". The gold painting in the characters looks like it was mixed with sand possibly, it has a rough texture. There is a split running all the way from top to bottom, it was repaired long ago with primitive metal brackets and is very solid now. It measures 17 3/4" wide and 54" tall. This is an Impressive piece, It is an antique about antiquities.
