This rare group dates from the early Tang Dynasty. It's made of grey pottery and it has traces of painting ( see the back of the cart ). The ox is very well proprtioned and was made with an eye for detail: notice the ring in the nose and the tail curved around its body. The cart consists of three parts; the weels come off. The three pieces have been mounted on a professional stand.
Dimensions: the ox : height 18 cm, length 24 cm, the cart: height 31 cm, length 23 cm, width 17 cm. Condition: very good but there may be invisible professional restorations, which are very common and accepted on excavated items.
