Chinese Rubbings Collection

More than 2000 digital images of Chinese rubbings that capture Buddhist and Daoist scriptural texts dating from the Qin Dynasty (221-207 BCE) to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 CE) that were carved on stone slabs, cave walls, bronze vessels, jade, ceramics, roof tiles, and other materials. The rubbings themselves date from the Ming Dynasty to about 1940 and are highly accurate. For more information about the collection, feedback, and questions, see Chinese Rubbings Collection.
