Ge Zun Ink Scroll

Ink scroll by Ge Zun depicts a dart game in which players try to throw red arrows at the target on the rug. Sake can be seen carried by the two courtiers on the left of the image, while the woman above the players provide a musical accompaniment. Deep cleaning and deacidification took care of the expansive fungal invasion; and the whitened spots in the middle of the scroll, possibly a stain from bleach or another cleaning agent, were also treated.
