A Large Han Dynasty Terracotta sculpture of a Mythical Beast.
Possibly a horned tiger but most probably a winged lion often seen in ancient jade sculptures. I cant emphasize how rare this item is and predict it will not last long. The condition is extraordinary with a few exquisite repairs to 3 legs barely noticeable. Traces of original paint mostly on the rear with the orange all appearing original. There are decorations on all four haunches and the face in intricately carved. A COA by Avantiques guaranteeing authenticity will be provided along with this item.
Length: 19 Inches, Height: 7.25 Inches, Depth: 8 Inches.
Condition: Very good with repairs. wear commensurate of age and use.
