Bronze Galloping Horse

Bronze Galloping Horse
Bronze charger. By representing the three feet of this handsome horse off the ground and making the right hind hoof stepping on a flying swallow with a back-turned head, the ancient bronze smith ingeniously succeeded in conveying the idea of a 'galloping horse stamping on a flying swallow' and created a masterpiece worthy of the tradition of 'beauty in form and dignity in spirit' in Chinese art. Eastern Han. Length 45cms. Unearthed in 1969 at Wuwei.
