Context: Excavated near Lo-yang, this small sculpture of a kneeling man holding a tube-like vessel in his extended hands may have served as a torch bearer in a tomb. The figure is clothed in a close-fitting garment that wraps from left to right in a broad overlap and is belted with a narrow band. The head-covering, rather like an open helmet, is broad at the back and rises to a peaked top before descending in a narrow tongue-shaped band to the forehead.
