Uncovered over a century ago by an anthropologist who – in turn – passed it on to his family . . .  ending up in a collector’s hands in Connecticut USA.


Tang Dynasty, circa 900 C.E.(A.D.).  From a site in Luoyang (Henan province).


Such figures would be buried with high-ranking people.  As with the Egyptians, it was believed that such a character would help in the transition into the afterlife . . . as well as keep the deceased safeguarded.


An excellent specimen, safeguarded in a display box with plexi viewing.  Check out the detail  . . . knowing that this level of detail is very rare.


For the Serious Collector.
