Ancient Chinese Han Dynasty Sleeping terracotta boar 206 B. C. 220 A. D
I have here a beautiful and sensitively hand moulded terracotta clay figure of a sleeping boar. The clay has been left in its original state, without glaze. Quite a remarkable statue, full of expression, on inspection you can see finger marks were the artist formed the features which, I hope has been captured in my photographs.

There is an original nick to its ear (original ancient damage) as can be seen in the photographs. The closest item I have seen are photos from museums.

He is a decent size. Was gifted to me by a wonder person who was a Chinese antiquities specialist and if I remember correctly he told me its from the Han Dynasty (please do correct me if Im mistaken) I guarantee this is genuine. Will be sent by recorded, signed-for.

This is a particularly beautiful piece of history that I shall be sad to see go. Any questions I will do my best to answer.
