White Rock Statue of a Strong Man

© Tang West Market Museum

The strong man is standing with a slight lean, his entire stance giving the impression of extreme anger, wearing a helmet and armor, his eyes are wide open; his right arm is slightly lifted and the left arm is on the waist, he seems to be clenching both his fists with vigorous power. Unfortunately, the face is damaged and hence his powerful expression hasn’t been preserved totally.
