Elegant authentic Chinese Sui / Tang Dynasty ( circa late 6th to early 7th century CE. ) Pottery Standing tomb attendant Figure. Lovely straw green mold-formed terracotta tomb attendant, dressed in floor-length robes that cascade down his body and topped by towering coiffures or headdresses. A ceramic figure of a standing man with a pale green, smooth glaze over his pink-pigmented surface. This figure was made to be placed into a tomb and probably represents a courtier, with his well-detailed clothing giving us a good idea of how elite people dressed during this time period.
