Ancient Chinese Tang Dynasty Terracotta Court Attendant Statue Figure - 900 Ad

A charming and high quality example of an Ancient Chinese Tang dynasty terracotta figure of an official, dating to approximately 900 A.D.

The male figure is shown wearing long robe with thick over-cloak, open at the chest. He wears a conical cap on his head and bears a serene expression. The hands, held close to the chest, are perforated and would once have held a stick, perhaps a candle for lighting the dark tomb in ancient times.

The figure appears to be dressed in thick garments for a cold climate, perhaps indicating that he was a foreigner or from the borders of Imperial China.

Height of figure:7inches.

Condition:Excellent condition.Intact, unrestored. Traces of original pigments.
