bookcover with two phoenixes

painted wood
China, 17th-18th cent.
82 x 28,5 x 3 cm.

Large cover, dramaticly painted in gold with two fierce phoenixes. As I know of two other, totally identical, covers, this most have been part of a larger set, also, like the famous covers from the Yongle-period, made in Beijing as present for a Tibetan monastery.
