Why this is a
Masterpiece

With its bright glaze, sturdy body, and vivid shape, it is really an excellent object among the Sancai Ceramic wares. The camel looks like it is from Central Asia, and the figurine is an ethnic Hu, but in Han costume and apparently it is a merchant on the Silk Road. This piece is real proof of the exchange between the West and the East on the Silk Road.

History of the Object
Unearthed in Luoyang City, Henan in 1962.
