Detail from a 510x900mm (10x35ins) panel involving at least 16 Elegant Action Figures in a range of sitting and walking poses. This period is synonymous with successful depictions of elegant miniatures in difficult positions, as is evident in this fine pair of sitting cross-legged figures. The main figure appears to be working on the head of a Multi Barb Spear which is supported across his legs. This form of Dunce Cap Headdress with small Pom Pom Tip is this Group's most frequently depicted decorative accoutrement. Smaller figures in group scenes are frequently depicted with undecorated round heads, possibly representing children.
