Under the Han rule (206 BC-2020 AD), China went through four hundred fruitful and eventful years that are gradually discovered through the discoveries of the tombs, and whose population we get to know through the many unearthed mingqa products. These small statues represent court ladies, dancers and musicians - men and women standing with dignity in long dresses crossed over their chests, with wide sleeves covering their hands - next to horses, domestic animals, but also miniature architectural elements. These items were often buried in graves with the dead. At the beginning of the twentieth century, during the development of construction and railways in China, many such tombs were unearthed, and along with them, many ceramics from past eras were found.
