This is a nice pair of tomb guardian, one piece in the form of a warrior and the other a mythical beast. The pair of tomb guardian is made of white earthen ware with copper green glaze. The green glazed is also nearer to the celadon glazed type. The clay, glaze and style suggest that the pair of tomb guardian suggest that this pair of tomb guardian straddles between the late Sui dynasty to the early Tang dynasty or about 7 century.

There is a re-attachment to the broken right ear of the beast guardian. There are chips, abrasions, pinholes and manufacturing faults as shown in photograph 5.

The measurement of the Sui / Tang dynasty tomb guardian: Soldier : Height 28.3cm and the Width 8.2cm. Beast : Height 28cm and the width is 9.9cm
