Sanguo Yanyi: a Pair of Reverse Paintings on Glass.
c. 1880 - Dimensions: 34.5 x 49.5 cm (image); 46.5 x 61.5 cm (with frame). Still in their original frame, this pair of finely painted pictures depict scenes from the 14th century epic "Sanguo Yanyi" ("Romance of the Three Kingdoms"). The scenes feature the formidable warriors Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and Liu Bei, who took an oath of fraternity and swore allegiance to the Han Dynasty in the famous "Oath of the Peach Garden". The most famous of the three, the red-faced Guan Yu, is still worshipped as a guardian deity in many Chinese temples.
