Figure, F91.54

Physical Description

Wooden figure of a man standing on a square base with a stylised cloud (?) design carved on it. The base is red and the figure red (lacquer?) with a gilt overcoat which is worn away in many places. The figure is short and somewhat thickset. He is dressed in a short jacket and 'skirt' over pants. He appears to have a breastplate hanging from the neck. He seems to be bald apart from two 'rolls' of hair above the ears. A long sash-like band extends from the base around the figure although it is broken about the head.
