Terracotta model painted in polychrome, with some evidence in wires and an armature; 28.5 cm high. The model is based on a portrait originally featured in the Fraser Albums of Company drawings by an Indian artist. Ami Chand is featured wearing a distinctive long yellow coat with red trimmings, a black jacket with red frogging and with facings at the collar in white with red trim, a tiger-skin bandolier, a tall shako marked with a crescent and with red trimmings and tassels, and white pantaloons. His left hand rests on the hilt of his upright sword. Lucknow or Delhi, 1819-20. Terracotta, with some evidence of wires and an armature, painted in polychrome; 28.5 cm high. http://blogs.bl.uk/asian-and-african/2018/04/sketchfab-3-d-modelling-of-skinners-trooper-ami-chand.html?_ga=2.183207078.1863917035.1524055212-1369855501.1500975261
