Description

Figures Around Central Figure from Tomb M1 from Mahao, Leshan. Five seated figures surround a central figure. One larger figure stands to the left facing the group with arms outstretched. Possibly a depiction of Xiwangmu however the form of the figure does not demonstrate any obvious relation to the Queen Mother such as the sheng. Black ink on rice paper. From Han tomb reliefs.
