It has been estimated that horses were first domesticated in this region around 5,000 years ago and were used for sport, war, art, travel and ceremony. In fact, as many museum pieces can attest to, horses were a major theme when it came to sculpture and art. The Tang Dynasty (618-907AD) is the most well-known for these beautiful creations. This horse sculpture is decorated with an antiqued gold coloured pattern and comes with a flowing rug upon its back. It will certainly catch the attention in which ever setting it is placed.
