particularly by its two colors: blue and red. Both colors may
be immediately apparent to the eye, but their inner, emotional
impact is different for every observer. Chinese blues range
from light sky tones to the deep, mystical indigo so typical
for the peoples of Guizhou province, while red shades run from
dark crimson to the bright, blinding colors found in Yunnan
embroidery. Today’s digital photographic technologies provide
new ways to approach China’s rich visual tradition, and this

early period Chinese tomb pottery figure of an attendant.
It is skillfully modeled and sculpted of dense buff
pottery and has excellent detailing. The figure is dressed
in the traditional tied robes of the period which are
glazed in a deep purple black hue with dark green sash.
The figure’s head removes as is usual the case. There
are good remains of the original white slip and pigments.
There is a very good patina of age and exposure with
encrustations and calcifications. The condition is good
with few damages for age and type. Minor repairs may
be found in these early period examples of type.
