Chinese Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) terracotta Statue depicting a Lokapala , a Guardian ofBuddhist Temples and protector against evil spirits.

This well modeled figure stands in a menacing pose with his arms raised and fists clenched. His
face is contorted into an exaggerated and fierce expression showing frowning mouth and
bulging eyes. He is dressed in Tang Warrior armor. The costume shows traces of painted
decorative floral pattern with qilin motif shoulders, flared sleeves, and flowing robe panels
underneath. He wears a tall, decorative helmet that represents a bird’s tail with wings, and he
stands on top of a recumbent ram.
The clay surface shows some minor restorations as would be expected with overall wear
commensurate with age.
20” High X 7 ½” Wide X 4” Depth

Retail: $2800
