Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Horse & Rider
This attractive pottery model of a horse and rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold painted" in a base coat of white pigment on top of which have been applied various coloured pigments. The rider is a musician, a drummer, and is in the act of beating his drum. Interestingly in his left clasped hand can be seen the faint remains of rusted iron, the remains of a miniature drumstick. Presumably there was also originally some kind of drum attached by his left leg, where a hole has been filled.
Height 24 cm (9.5 inches). A nice example in very good condition. This item is available to view at our gallery.
