English: Tri-coloured figure of a civil official
  • Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618 - 907)
  • Excavated at Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, 1957
This figure depicts the typical clothing of a Tang Dynasty official; tall hat, wide-sleeved outer garment tied at the waist with a wide belt, and rectangular "kerchief" in front. A white inner gown hangs over his square shoes. He solemnly holds a tablet to his chest, preparing to provide a report to his superiors.
