Guest Book
Exceptionally rare, grey pottery, recumbent tiger, circa Han Dynasty. So far this is the only one I have ever seen, outside of a book. This piece is in excellent condition, no damage with traces of original white pigments. Rather than a depicting the tiger as some ferocious predator it portrays it with a friendly expression. L: 25cm/9.8in and W: (midpoint) 8cm/3.1in.
