Chinese Northern Wei Dynasty Painted Pottery Figure
This painted pottery figure was made during the Northern Wei Dynasty (AD 386 - 534). It is made from a buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold painted" in various pigments. In both hands and the stomach area are purpose-made holes in which originally would have been placed miniature weapons or banners, now long since lost, presumably having been made of wood and rotted away. Note the detail to the clothing and head gear.
Height 24 cm (9.5 inches). Good overall condition with expected surface wear and loss of pigment in places.
