Blood Jade War Horse. China.
This is quite a prize. The head is styled after the Han Dynasty horses . . . exaggerated and – sometimes – comical. The body, definitely Tang Dynasty.
A great combination of traits.
And then there is the JADE . . . multi-colored with furious intensity.
From Zhenping County, Henan province . . . a special jade-carving place.
The color, the detail, the design . . . I have not seen anything like this in my 25 years of collecting.
Stand not included.
This item is SOLD. Thanks T.S. !
