Han Dynasty Attendant

$ 15,000
  • Description
    A rare early Han Dynasty Attendant.
    Attendants of this type, thought to be servants for the deceased, have been excavated from burial pits near the Western Han capital of Chang’an (modern Xi’an). This example of early Han ceramic sculpture depicting the human form represents a tradition of funerary sculpture production related to the Qin dynasty (221–206 b.c.) terracotta warrior figures found at the First Emperor’s tomb also near Xi’an.

Message from Seller:

I became interested in the Ceramic Arts; specifically Ancient Chinese Pottery, when my brother Marc; also an art dealer, introduced it to me over 20 years ago. Since then I traveled throughout Asia; including Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea, in search for those special pieces that appeal to the discerning collector, as well as the Designer Market.
