Item description: 

This grave stele depicts a young girl tenderly playing with a doll and goose. With his strong interplay of light and shadow as well as the contrast between sweeping strokes and rough surface textures, Dine imbued this image with romantic tone. It is a hauntingly modern vision of the ancient world.
