Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a residual part of the cloth with a length of 52 cm., and a width of 45 cm. The image of the person represented has broad eyes and a high nose with black hair. The proportions of the face and the facial features are accurate. The nose and eyelids are dyed by different colours, which make the image of the character more vivid. From this fabric it can be seen that the technique and skill of textile making and painting at that time was very well developed.

History of the Object
At Sampul, to the east of the city of Hotan, there is an extensive series of cemeteries scattered over an area about a kilometre wide and 23 km long. The excavated sites range from about 300 BCE - 100 CE. The excavated graves have produced a number of fabrics of felt, wool, silk and cotton.
