A rubbing, by accurately reproducing every fine details of the inscription or pictorial design using ink and paper, provides a sharper and more readable image than the object or a photograph of the original. Due to the loss and deterioration of many original objects through the centuries, ink rubbings frequently are the sole remaining evidence of a significant portion of China's artistic and cultural heritage. The rubbing works are made by applying sheets of paper into the surface of the object, and carefully inking the surface to create a copy of the original. The advantage of this technique allows the applications to any hard materials, including stone steles, cliffside engravings, bronze vessels, jade carvings, or even oracle bones and figurines. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=252218 China Institute China Institute
