Terracotta figurines believed to be made during the Wei Dynasty in Northern China were recently found in a tomb. ARTNews shares the findings.
The figurines depict people in many different roles, such as dancers, musicians, servants, and laborers; there are also figurines depicting animals and vessels among the group.
Archaeologists think that the tomb owners, as evidenced by the findings, would have been members of the upper class. Additionally, they believe that the female musician figurines can be studied for the connections between their costumes and national culture at the time.
