Chinese Northern Wei musician

A rare Chinese painted grey pottery figure of a standing musician, head turned sharply to the right, wearing a red coat and wind hat. Finely modelled and detailed.
Oxford TL test certificate.

To date I have seen only one other of these rare figures, obviously from the same original set of eight.
