Tomb Attendent

This mysterious figure was discovered during Chinese Cultural Revolution in the mid seventies. She was excavated in the Fukien area. Unfortunately, when the tomb was first surveyed by archaeologists, much of the tomb's burials were scattered about and disappeared . Though her neck was later restored, but we have little knowledge of what may had once held in her hands.

The statue is heavy, and sculpted almost in round. There is no doubt that her elegantly serene and contemplative countenance are more comparable to that of a Tang Buddhist sculpture (618-907 A.D.). Nonetheless, it is interesting to note that bared torso female religious figures are found exclusively only in Southeast Asia. Hence, her Chinese features attributed this large stone carving to early Ming dynasty, and her kneeling posture made aware of her servitude in a imperial family tomb.
