A fantastic Han style terracotta figure. Such a figure is seen in the Han dynasty dating 206 BC-220 AD. This piece is one of the oldest pieces among our collections. He appears to be a chef or a merchant who distributes buns, dumplings and other foods.  His hat and outfit are consistent with the Han era's style for such a profession. A wonderful sculpture, such a statue was regarded as a status symbol and became an important part of a burial ritual.
