Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Horse & Rider
This unusual model of a horse & rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a creamy-white pottery that has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments. Note the detail of the overweight rider's clothing and hairstyle, who seems to be slumped in the horse's saddle !
Height 27.5cm. Repairs should, of course, realistically be expected for such pottery figures. The left lower front body of the horse has been broken and re-stuck (as can be seen when looking inside the hollow body). There are also repairs to the legs and the faint sound of a crack when tapping the base. But overall, this is a rare and interesting example of Tang Dynasty equestrian pottery sculpture in good presentable condition.
