This is a Northern Wei 386-534 (to maybe early Tang dynasty, around the 8th Century), figure of 23 cm. tall, and made from a light brown clay. It is largely covered in a white slip. Other pigments have almost all disappeared, because they were cold-painted. (not fired in the kiln)
The figure shows some cracks, but is mainly in a good condition.
Interesting is that this figure possibly depicts a non-Chinese man. It is possibly a trader who came along the famous silk-route. He is wearing a bag, and has an intricate hair-do. It can also relate to the non-Chinese origins of the Norther-Wei
