Why this is a
Masterpiece

This bronze figure has a high value for academic research and art appreciation.

History of the Object
The bronze warrior’s face is full with broad eyes and a high nose. He wears a tall and round hat with a hook and a point and has a naked upper body, so he looks mighty and powerful. His left leg is knelt down, in his two hands he is holding weapons. He has a dignified expression, his eyes stare ahead and he is prepared to fight. Academics believe that the man belonged to the Sai Zhong people (Scythians) who were one of the Caucasian races .The bronze statuette with its pointed cap is a typical image of Sai people. It is not difficult to see from it that Xinjiang has been a place where multi-ethnic groups lived and that it has been a cultural melting pot since ancient times.
