A traditional style of Han Dynasty, specifically ethnic Sichuan or Szechuan, Chinese Reddish-Orange Terracotta Pottery Dancing Figures, often found in Sichuan tombs dating to China's extremely historically important Han Dynasty- dating from 220 BCE to 206 CE (AD) the Han Dynasty, in the case of the Chinese Culture, is the bridge between the Ancient/Archaic Era and the Modern Imperial Chinese Period, which continued until the Early 20th Century when "Imperial China" ended with the Revolution which seized power from the then ruling Qing Dynasty. No damage or repairs are visible on either piece. Mineral deposits and wear typical of terracotta sculpture of this age are present. The woman and man are shown mid-dance, both with their right arms raised, as is typical of this style of Dancing Figure sculpture, with the woman wearing a tripartite floral headdress and the curved headdress of a Han Dynasty Gentleman on the male figure; both wearing floor-length robes. A Beautiful and Very Large example of Han Dynasty Sichuan Pottery.
