An impressive large Western Han Dynasty Stoneware Mingqi Lady Statue in the traditional Han dynasty style of the period. This statue differs in colour from other Han dynasty tomb ladies where the clay appears lighter in color. Also, the painting style in which this statue is painted is not typically seen on figures but is more frequently seen on Han dynasty ming qi vessels and cocoon jars. The head is likely a replacement and not the original.
A similar style of artwork on a horse figure is housed at the San Antonio Museum of Art.
