Beijing: Chinese Archaeologists have reconstituted a 5,300-year-old Mongolion pottery statue found at a relic site in North China.

The debris of the pottery statue was found at the Xinglonggou relics site in Aohan banner of Chifeng city in north China in May, the Academy of Social Sciences announced today.

Experts began to excavate the debris on June 30, and finished restoring the statue yesterday, Liu Guoxiang, leader of the first archaeology team of Inner Mongolia told Xinhua news agency.

The restored seated figure is 55-cm high with big bulging eyes, a high nose and vivid facial expression. It was pieced together from 65 fragments.
"The statue may be of a wizard or leader in the famous Hongshan Culture period (a Neolithic culture dating back 5,000-6,000 years)," Liu said.
