Human Skin with Painting on the surface.
Several human skin paintings appeared in the Qinghai area of China in the mid 1990s. These paintings are newly painted but were intended to appear old. The artist is well known in the area. Unfortunately these skin paintings have led to to the mistaken belief that they are old and in some way traditional.
Paintings of this type can be either classified as new or as outright fake.
