Lao tse on his buffalo. The clay is a reddish-brown color. There are traces of polychromy. Although it is an object of modest size and simple form, it is worth noting the quality of the sculpture, indeed the expression of the face of the philosopher although quickly and summarily executed by a few stabs by the artist is superbly expressive, her body is slightly bent by the weight of years and the fatigue of the journey. In contrast, the face of the buffalo is young, dynamic and lovable. Weï style and probably from the period. Bought in France in the 70s which excludes that it is a modern copy. Colors erased. The tip of a broken and lost horn. A buffalo's ear broken and glued. Long: 225mm
