A famille rose enameled porcelain figural plaque
Depicting the late Ming dynasty warrior-poetess Xue Susu on horseback standing beneath a willow tree while another consort nearby looks off into the distance unaware of the death-defying feats of marksmanship conducted perilously close to her head, all beneath a long prose ode describing the scene and Xue's artistic and athletic achievements; mounted into a wood frame.
