An elegant and large grey earthenware Han Dynasty attendant. The clothing is typical, shown in the form of a flowing long-sleeved robe, the shoes, just visible under the folds of the hem. The figure retains the original white slip and added decoration has been provided in red, umber and black pigments to show the facial features and the hair which forms a long pony tail down below the shoulders. The figure has been designed with typical Han dynasty features, including the slender form and draping robes, with the elongated sleeves. Her slim frame juxtaposes the robust and portly form of the Tang Dynasty ‘Fat Ladies’.

Grave goods were an important status symbol in Ancient China, so the affluent and important would be accompanied in their travels through the afterlife with numerous depictions of people and items, made for the service and entertainment of the owner, so that their journey would be a happy one.

Condition: Very fine, complete and intact. The slip and painted decoration a little rubbed in places but largely extant, with light earthy accretions.

Period: Han Dynasty: Circa 200 BC/AD.
