This Northern Wei Dynasty brick is from a group I purchased for my own collection over 12 years ago.
It was the only one with a non religious representation and that is what makes this one so interesting as the the figure clearly demonstrates the beginnings of how female figures were depicted in the Tang Dynasty.
Quite a bit of the colour still remaining.

300 mm x 135 mm x 70 mm.

I have available for the buyer a copy of the TL report of another brick in this particular group. See the photo. The one TL tested was a more common so called 'Buddha brick' It is described as "Han" on the certificate, but that's incorrect. All the bricks in this group are Wei.

Yuan Wei (Northern Wei) which is 386 - 534.

The last photo shows it alongside a typical Tang dynasty brick.
Price: 625 GBP
