A finely moulded Western Han terracotta funerary painted tile in a triangular shape, presenting a winged-phoenix soaring against a painted background. The phoenix is naturalistically sculpted in relief, with its wings fully stretched while turning its head to face the rear. Its facial features and feathers are meticulously rendered in detailed incisions. Reddish-orange pigments remain visible to the surface.
Date: Circa 202 BC-AD 9
Period: The Western Han Dynasty
