Chinese Zodiac Horse
Period: Qing Dynasty, possibly later
Dimensions: approximately 4”H x 6”W
Material: Patinated brass
We discovered this incredibly detailed horse on our travels in Asia. It is most likely meant to represent the zodiac figure of the horse, or ⾺. The horse symbolizes courage, intelligence, dignity, and power. It is perhaps one of the most important characters in Chinese culture. Made of brass with patination commensurate with age. Comes with blackened wood base.
