This set of beautiful terracotta horses are hand made and painted using the ancient Tri-Glaze techniques. The Sancai technique dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618–907AD). It is a true work of art. From the choice of colors to the way glaze is applied, it takes great artistic training and tremendously high skill. Sancai sculpture remains one of the most admired and treasured art forms till this day.
The use of black is rather rare in San Cai arts compared to the traditional green and caramel. The drastic contrast adds an almost modern touch to these pieces. This set of horses will make fantastic accessories for a mantel, bookcase, or a table.
