gilding, h 13.0cm × w 6.0cm × d 4.3cm More details

Sculptures from the early 6th century are characterized by narrow waists, flat, stylized drapery folds, and angular faces, hands and feet. Later, in the brief Sui dynasty period, figures become detached from their background and are modelled in the round. They also stand upright, in a somewhat stiff and static pose.
