Green Ceramic Tang Horse
These wonderful ceramic horses in a jade green glaze are reproductions of horses produced during China's Tang Dynasty. 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.
