A majestic brown caramel colored horse in high gloss. This piece depicts the horse by demonstrating its lively expression, emotional eyes and stately posture. Well defined muscles and robust body shape. The horse is decorated with bells and rosettes inset with a red center. Beautiful green saddle. This wonderful piece has all the hallmarks of Tang San Cai terracotta potteries with skillfully applied glaze achieving amazing artistic effect. The Sancai technique dates back to the Tang dynasty (618–907AD). Sancai sculptures remain one of the most admired and treasured art forms till this day. A beautiful, highly collectible piece.
