A nice old wooden Tibetan prayer flag block printer featuring the renowned Tibetan yogi Milarepa.

The printing surface is worn and the wood has a nice patina. The method by which these were traditionally used is for the block to be covered in ink, the the cloth is placed on to the carved surface and pressure is applied to the back back of the cloth, which in turn imparts the image to the front of the cloth
