The grandson of Genghis Khan, Kublai Khan ruled China in the 13th century. He was a brilliant warrior and statesman. He also adapted Chinese traditions and made Buddhism the state religion, he became the first emperor of foreign origin that ruled the vast empire. It is note worthy that in the period preceding this carving, Mongolian tradition preferred cremation for the dead. Since such ritual often done in secrecy, as a result, few Mongolian tombs have been found in China to this day. This wood sculpture of a Mongolian warrior, likely an effigy once used in ritual that invokes the dead. this is a rare and important shrine statue which documented the Mongolian's adaptation into Chinese culture.

Under careful observation, it appearers that this Mongo statue has been consecrated with a ritual blessing. There is a certain ritual offering embedded in the hallowed space in the statue, to which a large wood plug is secured to keep this substance in place (respectfully, it is untouched by our reviewers). This well dressed Mongolian in robes and armors is very well carved. Though time has diminished much of its former glory; his warrior class is clearly indicated in the clenching fist of his right hand, and the threatening mudra of his left (missing little finger). There are burn marks and extensive paint loss. The lacquered and painted face is largely intact. Traces of gilt are also found scattering on areas of the statue.
