Han dynasty tombs were often furnished with grave goods to provide the deceased with items for the afterlife.
This pottery panel and 1925.140 were made in molds to be joined with other panels to build a miniature stove. The panels, however, are not complete and presumably do not belong together. This panel depicts a tiger attacking a boar.
