This apparently austere attendants are sitting on their legs, they are resting their fists on their laps. Their flowing red robe with a lapel pulled across from the left and fastened on the right. Poking out at the collar is a roll of fabric of the warm undergarments, decorated in white to make a contrast with the outer robe. The facial features, and particularly the eyes and lips, are executed with great delicacy, the hair is pulled back from the face and worn long at the back. Of all the many styles of "ming qi" known from the Western Han dynasty period, terracotta models of court attendants such as this pair are renowned as being of particularly high artistic quality. Such figurines clearly demonstrate a good number of the classic attributes of the Han style such as simplicity and a great sense of symmetry in forms. - (RL.4297)
