Antique Chinese Han Pottery - Man
17"W x 17"D x 18"H - China - Terracotta
A big distinction of the Han dynasty vs the previous was that they had a appreciation of theur heritage, often presenting daily activities of life in art and sculpture. They didn't believe a terracotta army was necessary in the next life, but rather their people and animals. Once beautiful adorned with fabric outfits and elaborate painting, or even arms of wood; time left behind a new form of art. Simple and wonderful especially highlighted on this custom metal stand.
