This is Mr Nobody, around 1600's and from China. These replicas may be based on this on a Dutch earthen ware. He has no body. It is so funky to see all of these earthen ware together in neat rows.

I loved this piece as well, It is an eagle, salmon cape by modern artists, Don and Trace Yoemans. The colors are so sumptuous.
