Chinese Yuan Dynasty Buddhist Pottery Zodiac Animal - Tiger
This pottery model of one of the twelve animals of the Chinese calendrical cycle was made during either the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) or the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368). The details have been individually sculpted as opposed to having been formed by a mould. It has been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province. Although with models such as this it is not always easy to tell which of the twelve zodiac animals it represents, we beleive this to be a tiger.
Length 11.5 cm. No repair or restoration; very good condition.
