China, Tang Dynasty 618-917, Terracotta Statuette of a Lady of Court Fat Lady

About

Superb and uncommon Chinese terracotta statuette of the Tang period (618-907) depicting a Lady of the Court commonly called "Fat Lady" with a body concealed under an ample garment enhanced with pigments in camaieu colors of white, pink and ocher only showing the shoes. The full and serene face is of a beautiful pink hue. It is surmounted by a complex haircut. Some cooking or seniority nights are visible on the right side. No lack or trace of shock. A thermoluminescence test was carried out in 2001 by the well-known expert firm of Francine Maurer (ASA). The test concludes that the last cooking dates back to 1250 years, dating from around 750 AD. Dimensions: Height 13.59 (in). Width 4.73 (cm). Depth 3.55 (in). Dimensions: Height 34.5 (cm). Width 12 (cm). Depth 9 (cm).
