Blood Jade War Horse.  China.

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



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. !
