This unglazed black pottery burial figure was uncovered in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, and dates back to the Western Han dynasty (206 BC- 9 AD). The figure is dressed in a white robe with straps of red pigment, and was likely a female attendant intended to ensure special treatment in the afterlife.
