From a Neolithic site at Mount Yingpan, Pukou district, Nanjing,
H. 9.8 cm, W. 7.9 cm
The gray pottery human face sculpture is hollow with hard texture
and smooth surface. The sculpture looks dignified and
sharp-featured, with a crown decorated by engraved designs on top.
There are some holes on both sides and the top of the crown, which
may have been used to hold feathers or cogon-grass. The human face
sculpture is considered as a priest full of mystic symbolism and
power, in south China, 5000 years ago.
