small tile

Eastern Han Dynasty, 25-220 AD, China This small tile of molded terracotta dates to the Eastern Han Dynasty. It shows on one side a naturalistic figure - most probably an elephant tamer - dressed in Han costume and with a headdress, holding a staff together with an elephant. A
ig and a dove flying overhead also feature. The scene is surrounded by cloud-like borders. The tile has traces of white ochre. Probably this tile was made to adorn a tomb. http://curatorseye.com/
