Chinese Western Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Figure (206 BC - AD 8)

According to the book "Spirit of Han", in which similar examples are illustrated, this type of figure represents a kneeling servant. However, similar examples have also been excavated on the backs of horses. It was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). It has been cold painted in a thick powdery white pigment on top of which have been applied various other coloured pigments. 

Height 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). Signs that the head may have been broken and re-stuck at the neck, but overall a very nice figure in good overall condition.
