Terracotta Han Dynasty Farm with Pig, China, 200 BC

About

Burial figurines of graceful dancers, mystical beasts, and everyday objects reveal both how people in early China approached death and how they lived. Since people viewed the afterlife as an extension of worldly life, these figurines, called mingqi, sometimes referred as “spirit utensils” or “vessels of ghosts” disclose details of routine existence and provide insights into belief systems over a thousand-year period. These figures were buried with the wealthiest members of society, and served to comfort and satisfy the deceased. This is a fascinating piece representing someone's farm and livestock.
