A Painted Pottery Sichuan Horse with Removable Saddle

Han Dynasty (206-220 AD)
Reference #: P6792

Height: 42 1/2 inches (108 cm.)
Length: 38 3/4 inches (98.4 cm.)

The powerful, unglazed pottery sculpture modeled in a prancing pose with the front leg raised in mid-step, the head and ears raised alertly with the mouth open and nostrils flared, fitted with a removable saddle and detailed with a bound tail. Carved at the shoulders and down the legs with subtle lines to emphasize the strong musculature of the animal.
