Green Ceramic Tang Horse
These fabulous reproduction ceramic horses are based on those traditionally used during China's Tang Dynasty, they are finished in a jade green glaze. Along with figurines of camels and other animals, and of servants and civil officials, pottery horses like these were produced to be buried with the wealthier members of society. The Chinese believed that this life would continue into the next, and so in order to preserve their status and high standard of living they would have ceramic replicas of their servants and most important possessions produced to be buried with them. Our versions are available as a pair (each one facing either slightly to the left or right) or can be bought individually. The price shown is for one horse only.
