Seller: artancientltd (9,292) 99.7%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291550574140 A very rare and large ancient Chinese figure of an exorcist or warrior, dating to the Western Jin dynasty, 265 – 316 AD. Western Jin terracotta figures such as this are some of the most distinctive mingqi known from ancient China. With his fierce, powerful pose, clenched teeth and long shield, this warrior is an exceptional example. Western Jin figures such as this are rarely found on the market. Even rarer are examples surviving with their original shield, and free of deceptive restorations. Compare an example currently on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - here. Height: 15 inches. Length: Width: 9 inches. Condition: Very good, head and proper left arm/leg reattached, with encrustations commensurate with an ancient figure. Very seldom found with the original shield. 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.
