A RARE LARGE SANCAI -GLAZED POTTERY FIGURE OF A CAPARISONED FERGHANA HORSE
TANG DYNASTY (AD 618-907)
A RARE LARGE SANCAI -GLAZED POTTERY FIGURE OF A CAPARISONED FERGHANA HORSE TANG DYNASTY (AD 618-907) The horse is superbly modeled standing with the head turned slightly to the left, the ears pricked and the mouth open, and is glazed predominantly in chestnut with a cream-colored blaze running from the poll to the muzzle and with a further large cream splash on the left shoulder. The long, naturalistic mane covered in a cream-colored glaze falls onto one side of the powerful neck and is incised with grooves to simulate the thick hair. The green-glazed saddle cloth is deeply scored and roughened to simulate fur, and there are green-glazed, foliate-molded plaques pendent from the halter, breast and crupper straps. The hoofs and docked tail are covered with a straw glaze. 29 in. (73.7 cm.) high
