Ceramic Amber-Glazed Figurine of a Foreign Merchant (Tang Dynasty, 618-906)

Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD), height: 27cm
A hollow-cast figure of a standing foreign merchant with hooded cape, hands held to the chest and clasped together with a small hole for insertion of a gift from mediterrenean shores. A rich amber glaze covers his cloak. The Tang dynasty was a period of considerable expansion, marked by greatly increased trade both within China and abroad and ceramic wares formed an important part of that trade. The figure would be placed at the entrance to tombs of the elite, in order to honour the deceased in the afterlife.
Provided with a Thermoluminescence test as proof of authenticity.
