Fine Chinese Western Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Figure (206 BC - AD 8)
This tall pottery figure was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). It represents a male servant or attendant. It is "heavily-potted" and made from a grey pottery that has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments, much of which still remain. There is a purpose-made hole, where the would-be hands are clasped together under the robe, where originally would have been placed possibly a banner of some sort made of wood, now long since rotted away and lost. Note the feet sticking out from under the hem of the robe.
A good size with a height 32.5 cm (12.5 Inches). With no sign of restoration or repair and so much original pigment remaining, this is an exceptional example in fine condition.
