Tall Chinese Northern Wei Dynasty Painted Pottery Warrior with Shield

This fine pottery figure was made during the Northern Wei Dynasty (AD 386 - 534). The head and body have been made separately, and it represents a warrior clad in armour and holding a shield. In its right hand would originally have been placed a miniature weapon, probably made of wood, now long since rotted away and lost. Note the attention to detail, especially to the face. Very good traces of the various coloured pigments still remain. 

Height 34.5 cm (13.5 inches). Although not at all obvious, there are signs of repaired breaks or cracks to the lower body. Overall, a nice and rare example in very good condition.
