Antique hand carved Sanskrit text on a hand cut piece of wood. The wood is roughly hewn with a chunks missing to one edge along the underside and at a corner, and the back clearly shows the irregular saw cuts. However, the script itself is finely carved within its rectangular frame.
The text has the smoothness and patination of years of touch. The wood shows sign of age with rubbing to the black paint along the edges
