Description

Han dynasty tombs were often furnished with grave goods to provide the deceased with items for the afterlife. Four earthenware panels were made in molds and then joined together to make a miniature model of a stove. Opposite one another on the two long sides of the stove are representations of the eastern dragon and western tiger, here fended off by a lancer.
