A beautiful and unusual Tang dynasty ceramic horse. It is depicted with three hooves planted to the ground, standing on a small base. The other leg is raised and bent slightly as though prancing forward. The head is slightly bowed and eyes downcast and ears pricked forward. Smaller in size, unusually there is fabulous movement depicted to the horse’s mane and saddle blanket. The use of pigment, in black for the mane and red for the blanket, carefully highlights the fluidity of the animal’s movement. The downcast eyes and forward pricked ears insinuate that something has startled the horse, perhaps a groom that would have accompanied the piece originally. A fantastic piece with real character.

Tang dynasty, c. 618-907 AD
