Tang Dynasty c. A.D. 618-709. A large and impressive Ancient Chinese "Tang Dynasty" terracotta male attendant statuette collected in the 1960's/70's and from an old West Country collection. A large hollow votive statuette in the form of a standing male attendant wearing a long gown, hair worn high on the head and arms crossed. Once most likely brightly painted with coloured pigments but now just bare terracotta. These statuettes were placed in shrines and also in tombs intended to act as servants / attendants in the afterlife. Some light surface wear from its time buried in the earth and small knock to front edge of base otherwise totally intact, un-repaired and in very good condition for its great age. A good sized and appealing ancient statuette, 240mm tall x 63mm wide x 500 deep.
