Chinese Jin Dynasty Pottery Tile - Wrestler (AD 1115 - 1234)

This moulded and "heavily-potted" pottery tile was made during the Jin Dynasty (AD 1115 - 1234) and has been excavated from Shanxi province in the northern region of China. Theatre, opera and music was immensely popular during the Jin Dynasty and in recent years various pottery tiles have been excavated depicting a whole range of musicians and characters from various musical and artistic performances. 

This particular tile depicts a squatting human figure that we believe to be a wrestler, possibly a character from a traditional folk tale.

Height 17 cm, width 15 cm thickness of 4 cm. Weight 1.6 kg. There are a few surface chips but there is no sign of restoration or repair; very good condition.
