This beautiful and relatively rare Ming Dynasty tomb figurine, shaped like a pig, is painted in an incredibly beautiful green color and partially covered in earthy encrustations that can be brushed off with a little work. The mould-made figure has paint added before firing, which explains its well-maintained condition. Fine details, especially visible on the face, enhance its charm. The pig features a tail with a ventilation hole underneath, preventing breakage during firing. Such animal figures are uncommon compared to the more familiar classic Ming figures.
