Guest Book
Chinese tomb pottery figure of an foreign army general. He stands confidently with chin up and arms bent. His fists are clenched and most likely he once wielded a spear or weapon of some sort. His armor is elaborately carved with swirling motifs and he wears a helmet with round finial. His eyes are wide and his teeth are defined in an intense expression. He is sculpted with great care and traces of slip pigment are still apparent where he was once painted. Made of gray clay and mineral slip pigments. Tang Dynasty (618-907) Size: 22 3/4" high (with metal stand: 23" high x 7 1/2" wide x 6" deep.)
