Tall Chinese Tang Dynasty Pottery Figure of a Foreigner (AD 618 - 906)
This fine pottery model of a foreign groom was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is solid and made from a buff-coloured pottery that quite highly-fired, having a distinct ring to it when tapped. It has been "cold-painted" in various coloured pigments, good traces of which still remain. He stands in the act of holding the reins of a horse (or camel). Note the detail of the fingers and thumbs of his right hand, but especially the facial features.
This figure is of a good size with a height of 33.5 cm (13 inches). There is, of course, some surface wear and loss of pigment but no obvious sign of restoration or repair; a fine figure in fine condition.
