Antique Chinese Han Pottery - Man
17"W x 17"D x 19"H - China - Terracotta
A big distinction of the Han Dynasty versus the previous was that they had a appreciation of their heritage, often presenting daily activities of life in art and sculpture. They didn't believe a terra cotta 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.
