  • A Sancai-glazed Earthenware Zodiac figure of a Horse

    Past Highlights: A Sancai-glazed Earthenware Zodiac figure of a Horse

    Tang dynasty, 618 - 907 AD
    Tang ceramic sculpture, 2001

    Whether eleven other zodiac figures originally accompanied this piece or it was buried in the tomb of one who was born in the year of the horse as a 'one off' will never be known.  However, the extraordinary sensitive modelling and luminous glazing are not equalled in any of the other Tang zodiac figures so far known.
