DescriptionThe presence of the word fou throughout this text indicates that this document is a Buddhist text, possibly a dedication. The calligraphy is executed in the running grass script. It has three seals: the first one at the opening of the text indicates a studio name; of the last two, the first is a family or personal name, and the last one, which is partly obliterated, is presently indecipherable.
