VERY RARE Ancient Chinese Tang Dynasty Terracotta Human-Cow Zodiac Figure. circa 900 A.D.
 
Intact and un-restored, 6 3/8" height, 

Considerable white and orange pigment survive on this very rare piece.  

From the famous North American collection of Ms.L.Hoffman, (1924-2009) ,Hoffman was a wealthy Michigan philanthropist and heiress to the E.K.Warren fortune, 
a famous 19th century industrialist who patented the use of "feather-bone" in ladies fashions. Ms Hoffman collected from a young age, often paying
 above value for ethnographic items in the hope the extra money would assist the tribes-people as a whole.Hoffman formed a huge collection of antiquities 
and works of art, to the point that the collection required its own curator. She moved to Sydney in the latter part of her life.
 
Certificate Of Authenticity supplied. 
Purchased from  U.K. Ancient Art Dealer.
