This fascinating figure dates to the Han Dynasty of ancient China (circa 200 BC). It is in remarkable condition considering its age. These have not been available for private purchase for quite some time. This piece is extraordinary because of its dark color, which is only seen in a fraction of these type figures. These figures were placed inside of tombs to provide symbolic presence for the afterlife. The arms were made of wood and the clothes would have been fashioned out of cloth which explains why only the pottery figure remains. Don't miss the opportunity to invest in such a rare relic. Genuine Chinese antiquities are becoming very scarce and values are rising. This figure is approximately 58 cm in height. The stand is included. Additional photos or information available on request.
