The etchings were never intended as a pair, but today are commonly viewed as a set. *To assist buyers, I have reduced the price, based on the additional shipping costs.
Like with, "A Chinese Buddhist Priestess", this uncatalogued (Miles) etching was printed in a very small edition and few have survived. Illustrated in color, full page in the Miles catalog, page 12.
Miles notes: "One of E. K.'s greatest images. A Chinese Buddhist priestess sketched in 1919 in an unfamiliar by not uncomely costume was the subject of a watercolor. This etching was printed in a very small edition of less than 25, and few have survived."
