The hair is done in a conical shape. The plump, flat face with the small mouth and nose are typical for the Liao period (907 - 1125). On the ears and in the face traces of gilt lacquer. Also traces of a yellowish lacquer that may have served as a basis to apply the gold to. On the lips and on the ushnisha rests of red lacquer. Excellent condition.
