This is a miniature of a foot-soldier from Western Han period (206BC - AD9), wearing a brightly painted robe reflecting the style of light infantry at the time. They were supposed to be holding a wooden shield with the outstretched arm and weapon on the other, which has now disintegrated. The armour suggest the soldier were a front line as the style of robe armour enhance mobility where as the second one is in heavy armour.
