A very fine terracotta statue of a walking horse made during the early Tang Dynasty. 618-906AD. The animal has been modelled in striding position with it's proud head pointing forwards with ears erect and mouth closed. Leatherwork decorates the head. The well detailed saddle sits on a soft under blanket which reaches halfway down the horses powerful legs. The detailed hooves shows that this was an important animal. The tail has been cut and wrapped in coloured silk. Oxford TL tested. Sample No C105u43. Three samples were taken; one from the left buttock, one from back of the saddle and one from under the chin. All from the period.
