Tall Chinese Western Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Soldier (206 BC - AD 8)
This impressive pottery model of a warrior was made over 2,000 years ago during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8); as can be seen by the quiver on its back, this figure is that of an archer. It is made from a dark grey pottery that has been "cold painted" in a base coat of white pigment with the features and details picked out in red and black pigments. Note his benign face ! Originally this figure would have held a miniature weapon and shield made of wood which have, regretfully, long since rotted away.
It is a tall figure with a height of 45.5 cm (18 inches). The figure does have a lean to its left but it stands perfectly well unaided. There are possibly minor repairs as should reasonably be expected, although the only obvious defect are the missing ends of the fingers in the outstretched hand; overall, very good condition.
