Note: Liu Miao Chan was declared a ''National Living Treasure'' by the government of Taiwan in 1986, and the artist's work was the subject of a month-long one-man show held at the National Cultural Gallery in Taipei; at the time, an unheard-of honor for a single artist.
Overall good condition. With scattered small spots of discoloration throughout; one figure with discoloration primarily localized to right arm. Shrinkage crack to base extending underneath one figure.
