Description

A Han Dynasty model of a man. So called “stick figures” because of their elongated shape, this naked figure would originally have had cloth clothing and wooden arms, which have long since rotted away. His face is expressive, displaying a tight lipped enigmatic smile. His hair modeled to suggest a long pony tail tied in a topknot. Much of the original pigmentation covers the high fired gray pottery body.

Mounted on a custom metal stand
