Chinese Tang Dynasty Horse & "Fat Lady" Rider (AD 618 - 906)
This fine and rare pottery model of a horse and rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). Sitting on the horse is a female courtier, often referred to as a "fat lady"; note her clothing and hairstyle. It is made from a dense buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments.
Height 31 cm (12.25 inches). The only obvious sign of repair is to the tail that has been broken and re-stuck, although other repairs should not be ruled out. Overall a rare and attractive example of Tang Dynasty equestrian pottery sculpture in fine condition.
