A very rare and complete set of Ming Dynasty pottery tomb ZODIAC figures. Each priest figure is holding one of the 12 astrological zodiac animals, dating to the early Ming Dynasty (ca. 1400-1500 A.D.). Special attention was paid by the artist to minute details of each animal and fine colors of the flowing robes and hats the priests are wearing. All these figures were excavated from the same tomb. Condition: good. Size: height approximately 20 cm. with minor variations. A very rare find indeed !
