These male nude figures were originally dressed with silk garments but has decayed along with the wooden arms. The original pigment was red to imitate skin tone and the facial features and hair were delicately painted with black pigment. Although a number of figurines similar to this one were produced in the 2nd century BCE, the practice did not survive after the fall of the Han Dynasty.
