Chinese Northern Wei Dynasty Painted Pottery Warrior with Shield (AD 386 - 534)
This interesting and rare painted pottery figure was made during the Northern Wei Dynasty (AD 386 - 534). It is made from a grey pottery that has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments. The figure represents a soldier standing to attention whilst holding a shield in his left hand. In the right hand is a purpose-made hole where originally would have been placed a miniature weapon, most likely made of wood and now long since rotted away and lost. Height 21 cm (8.25 inches). Very good condition.
