Seller: artancientltd (9,304) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291958779507 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An ancient Chinese court attendant figure, dating to China's Tang dynasty, circa 618 - 907 AD. The figure, representing a male courtier, shown standing attentively, his arms neatly folded, the hands hidden by long sleeves and wearing a tall head cap. The Tang Dynasty was one of the highlights of human civilisation; It was during the Tang dynasty that the Silk Route reached its golden age. This great cosmopolitan empire created an environment through which goods flowed from the harsh deserts of Morocco to the islands of Japan, all at a time when the west was merely a patchwork of competing kingdoms. Height: 13 inches Condition: Excellent, with no restorations. Provenance: Formerly in the collection of Mr. M. O'Hara (the full name and a picture of Mr. O'Hara will be provided to the new purchaser upon request). Mr. O'Hara was a prominent numismatist, author and collector who in later life developed a passion for Chinese terracotta art of the Han - Song period. He sought only the finest examples of their type, buying at a time in the late 1980s when examples without widespread deceptive restorations could still be acquired. ArtAncient purchased the entire collection directly from his heirs and is now honoured to present these items to the market after nearly 35 years.
