General Note / OCR

Embroidered Thai silk kept in a box labeled Tran Vai Lua. The blue silk is taped to and framed by white matting paper. The textile measures 14 1/4 inches in length by 14 3/8 inches in width. The image depicted is of two figures, one green and one white, locked in battle on a raring gold horse. The horse and its green rider, who is holding a spear, have turned their heads to look at their attacker from behind. In front of the horse is a gold rock. Behind the figures is a branch of tree with red blossoms which are etched in white. The ground varies from red to green.
