In the early Tang dynasty, figurines reflect the slender ideal form. In the middle Tang period the full-figured body and round-cheeked face became the fashion. This matronly woman with her delicate features wears a loose robe with low neckline and a loose jacket with wide sleeves. Her hair is gathered in a loose topknot.
