Battle Scene

Tags: art | battle

This image depicts a battle scene. Inscriptions beside the vehicles include: "secretary's vehicle," "vehicle of officials who evaluate qualifications in selecting officials," "patrol vehicle," "vehicle of finance, revenue and accounting officials," etc. Some scholars once argued that this image depicted a "peasant uprising." Recently, other scholars, based on comparison of this and similar scenes with inscriptions, have pointed out that the image represents a story concerning seven daughters avenging their father. The original stone is now kept in Chia-hsiang County, Shantung Province.
