Object Description

A very fine hollow-moulded grey earthenware female court attendant from the Chinese Han Dynasty period. The figure is presented standing in a reverent pose, wearing the traditional Han Dynasty court attire, known as shenyi, consisting of a long vest, tied to the waist and long, flaring sleeves. Her hairstyle, with a parting line in the middle and a bun to the back, is highly detailed through incisions. She has a calm expression, with gently smiling lips. This type of figurine would have been mould-made, with detailing added later.
