These kinds of figurines were placed in tombs with the deceased. The woman’s hair and clothing make it clear that she is a court lady. She holds a shuttle and a pair of scissors. The man is a westerner. This illustrates the interaction between China and the West, which in the time of the Tang dynasty (618-907) occurred via the silk route.
