Fine Chinese Tang Dynasty Horse & "Fat Man" Rider (AD 618 - 906)

This fine pottery model of a horse and rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). Sitting on the horse is a male courtier, often referred to as a "fat man", the male equivalent of the "fat lady"; note the clothing and hairstyle. It is made from a relatively high-fired buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments.

Height 31 cm. There is no obvious sign of repair, as is confirmed by shining a torch inside the hollow body. A fine example of Tang Dynasty equestrian pottery sculpture in fine condition.
