Small Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Camel
This small and very attractive pottery model of a camel was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a relatively highly-fired reddish pottery, the body having been made in a two-part mould with the legs and tail luted to the body. It is has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments.
Height 19.25 cm (7.5 inches). It is in exceptional condition (note that the "crack" to the front of the camel's neck is not actual damage but is a manufacturing feature where the join of the two halves of the body are luted together).
For information, our last photos shows other small horses and camels that came from the same excavation.
