Egypt & China

Egypt's Great Terrace of God

Faience shabtis (picture 9, of figurines/dolls) found in the tomb, they would have done the work of the deceased in the afterlife.

Chinese transliterates totem as tuteng (圖騰). Sanxingdui bronze masks and heads (radiocarbon dated circa 1200BCE) appear to have been mounted on wooden poles.

Red deer cave people in Menzing China: face form unusual, possibly archaic isolate from Melanesia via Borneo/Java?
