Chinese Tang Dynasty "Fat Man" Figure (AD 618 - 906)
This interesting and elegant looking pottery figure was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is the male equivalent of the well-known "fat lady" (female courtier) figures. It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from a buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold panted" in a base coat of white on top of which have been applied black, pink and pale yellow pigments, traces of which still remain. Note the detail of the clothing, facial features and hairstyle.
It is a good size with a height of 30 cm (12 inches). There is some loss of pigment and surface wear: note a part of the back where the pottery has "delaminated". There are chips and possible minor repairs to the base.
