Featured Item

12" wide x 5" deep x 10" high

Here is a sculpture of a Tang Horse Statue, a replica of the horse statue used as tomb decorations in China during the Tang Dynasty. This is an athletic aninal depicted in full regalia with head cocked to the side. Great pains have been taken to show the correct anatomy of the horse which was used as a war horse at that time. The use of a cavalry saddle and bridle on this sculpture would indicate wartime. The statue is made of bronze and a copper overlay gives it patina and emphasizes the detail. This a a handsome statue that demonstrates the majesty of the horse.
