Ming Dynasty Blue-Glazed Processional Figures

About the object

A set of blue-glazed Chinese Ming dynasty earthenware figures. Each figure has been styled in long, flowing robes coloured a vivid blue. Additional features have been accented in a deep amber yellow, highlighting sashes and hair ties. Their hair is tied into an elaborate top-knot and coloured a dull brown. The hair, with its dull colouring, and the other areas left bare would have been ‘cold-painted’ after firing, to contrast to the vivid fired blue and amber pigments. Each figure holds a processional instrument, instigating that such figures would have been placed in the deceased’s tomb to lead his way into the afterlife.
