Despite its rustic style, it is still an impressive sculpture. The body and base are unglazed, while the dress is olive green and the baskets are covered with a yellow and brown glaze. Pál Miklós, sinologist, aesthete and former director of our museum, received the object as a gift from Ho Ton-tsinh.
