OUTSTANDING TALL pottery "mingqi" featuring an unsaddled standing horse
Tang dynasty (618-907)
Grey pottery coated with white slip and well preserved red pigments.
The horse is wonderfully rendered with a detailed facial expression.
It is standing on its four legs, without pottery terrace.
The mane is hollow, which is explained by the fact that it was originally filled with horse hair - which has disappeared after centuries in the ground.
This is an exceptional tall and rare model of Tang horse, measuring 63cm high and 61cm long.
This horse is one of a pair, the other one is similar but with mouth closed.
Wonderful condition, no visible damage.

This horse comes with a TL certificate from Ralf Kotalla, consistent with the Tang period, in 3 different points.
This horse is coming from a Belgian collection.
