This lovely, stylish lady dates to the Sui dynasty (581–618 aD) . She is 21 cm’s high, the body is a pinkish white clay, and very poreus.The glaze has flaked off,
but still shows the greenish / yellow straw glaze.
The earth smell immediately rubs off on your hands. The head has been re-attached, and the foot is chipped. The hole in the side is most likely from a probe, used to search for hollow spaces under the ground.
