Grafbeeld van een hoogwaardigheidsbeklede, Anonymous, c. 700 - c. 800

h 102cm. More details

A set group of figures was positioned just outside the burial chamber in Tang tombs. This consisted of two guardians, two earth spirits and two officials, such as this individual. The bird on his headdress may have indicated his rank. Tomb figures were always colourfully painted. Gilding was applied only to the most expensive examples.
