Chinese Ming Dynasty Painted Pottery Tile - Ox & Moon

This rare and unusual pottery tile was made during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). It is made from a dense, quiet highly-fired grey pottery and features a reclining ox (or cow) in high relief. In the top right are clouds and a crescent moon. The tile has been "cold painted" in various brightly-coloured pigments, very good traces of which still remain.

Length 19 cm (7.5 inches), height 12 cm (4.75 inches). As is more often than not the case with such tiles, there is some loss of pigment and chips to the edges. One of the ox's horns has been broken and re-stuck.
