Large Chinese Eastern Han Dynasty Sichuan Pottery Figure - Musician

This large and impressive pottery model of a musician was made during the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25 - 220) and excavated from Sichuan province. A variety of figures of this general type excavated from Sichuan province are known. Although not always, they are often musicians and entertainers, and were made in a variety of sizes, presumably to represent the importance and status of the deceased. This figure wears a robe with wide sleeves and is kneeling in the act of playing the qin, a zither-like stringed instrument.  Note the smile on the musician's face! Height 44.5 cm (17.5 inches), width 43 cm (17 inches).
