Description: Tomb figure of a camel laden with food for the deceased in the afterlife. Given that the size of tomb figures was regulated by law, this large and impressive piece was probably commissioned for a high-ranking member of the nobility. The rich tones of green, yellow, and brown are typical of Ch’angan pieces.
