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 relatively high-fired 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. 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) and stands very well unaided. An exceptional example in very good condition.
