Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery "Fat Man" Figure
This interesting pottery figure of a male servant or groom was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). Its appearance is rather like a male version of the Tang "Fat lady". It has been made in a two-piece mould with the head luted to the body and the details such as the folds of the clothing individually incised/carved into the soft clay. There are good traces of the original surface pigments. On the surface in places are mineralised burial deposits.
Height 22.5 cm (8.75 inches). The right foot is chipped but no repair or restoration; very good condition.
