A beautiful cream colored horse in high gloss. This wonderful piece has all the hallmarks of Tang San Cai terracotta potteries with skillfully applied glaze achieving amazing artistic effect. Horse's vivid expression bring the piece to life. Its white mane is graceful. The muscles are well defined. The horse is decorated with bells and flowers. A traditional green saddle completes the look.

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, serene piece. Highly collectible.
