public_access_description
This earthenware figure once had detachable wooden arms and clothes made of fabric, both of which have now deteriorated. It represents another type of Chinese burial figures which is slightly less ambitious than the terra cotta armies of the First Emperor. Most of this type of tomb models depicts a man, and a female figure is much rarer.
