Tang Dynasty Pottery Bactrian Camel & Foreign Rider

Magnificent Tang Dynasty Pottery Bactrian Camel & Foreign Rider worthy of any International Museum. China (618-907 A.D.) T.L. Tested for Authenticity. A monumental artifact that expresses great motion. The camel stands four square on a plinth has head raised and mouth open with his tail swinging. The foreign rider is very detailed with pointed cap and beard with one arm raised. A small amount of the original paint remains on the camel. This piece is in excellent condition and measures 28 inches high and 21 inches from head to tail. The domesticated Bactrian camel has served as a pack animal in inner Asia since ancient times. It has two humps in contrast with the single-humped dromedary camel. With its tolerance for cold, drought, and high altitudes, it enabled travel such as the caravans of the Silk Road.
