An antecedent

Postby pdh0224 » Sat Oct 23, 2004 3:01 am

Dear teacher,

Yet Himalayan art is so visually dynamic, so obviously rich in surprises and secrets, that it would pull you in even if you stumbled across it by accident, which is more or less what the New York collectors Donald and Shelley Rubin did three decades ago when they saw a Tibetan painting in a shop window. It was an image of the goddess White Tara, the embodiment of the North Star, guide of pilgrims.

Q : I think the antecedent of "which" is "it would pull you in". What do you think?


All the best,

No, it is 'stumbled across it by accident'.
