A very rare and seldom offered Ancient Chinese large temple / shrine figure. This item which dates to the 7th - 9th Century AD shows the figure of a female attendant, nursing mother with a baby to her breast. She is shown in a kneeling position with a flowing dress flared out around her. The head to this figure would have originally been of the socket type however it has now been fixed into position possibly at the turn of the last century. Some minor good quality restoration is present to the back of the flared edge of dress. Apart from this, some small old edge damage is present in the same region. All of which does not detract from what is a difficult item to find.

Period style: Ancient Chinese
Dimension: 60.0 CM in height.
