Here we have a very rare and ancient Japanese Haniwa funerary figure from the 7th century (give or take a century or two). As with the vast majority of these, he has been reassembled. These figures were meant to accompany the deceased on their journey in the afterlife. This piece has a particularly powerful and almost haunting presence. He stands close to 10 inches tall.
