Why this is a
Masterpiece

This wooden stele is evidence of the system of granting fields to high-ranking officials particularly in the Tran Dynasty (13th - 14th Century) but also more general in Vietnamese history. This is the oldest wooden artefact that is still intact and that bears a complete original description.

History of the Object
The Da Boi stele was found in September 1962 in Da Boi village (Thai Binh Province). The wooden stele is engraved with an inscription indicating the date (1269), the names of the officials who erected the stele, and the area of land allocated to meritorious officials.
