Rare Chinese Six Dynasties "Fish Lady" (AD 220 - 589)

This very interesting and rare pottery model of a mythical creature with the tail of a fish and a female human head was made during the Six Dynasties period (AD 220 - 589). It is heavily-potted and has been "cold painted" with a base of white pigment with the details of the face and head picked out in black and red. Note the detail of the facial features. 

Length 30.5 cm (12 inches). 

Various mythical creatures, some with human attributes, are known from this period and this is one of five we are presently offering for sale.

For information: we sold this around 15 years ago to a private collector and valued friend who has, sadly, recently passed away.
