Should horses falter, the state will fall is how the courageous Chinese General Ma Yuan (14 BC - 49 AD) described the importance of the horse in oriental culture. Lladro borrowed its inspiration from the equestrian sculptures of the Tang dynasty (618 - 907), the golden era of Chinese art, to create this High Porcelain Oriental horse. A remodeling, on a smaller scale and with different finishes, of the limited edition with the same name launched in 1971, which was sold out in 1986.

The Lladro Oriental Horse Glazed Figurine 01001943conveys the meaning this animal held in China since ancient times: beauty, power and wealth. As in equestrian sculptures from the golden era, these pieces are depicted with great naturalism, achieved through meticulous attention to detail. The head, inclined in an elegant posture, shows off the bowed neck and prominent breast, conveying nobility and elegance.

The Lladro Oriental Horse Glazed Statue has been enhanced by the artists from the High Porcelain workshop with Lladro's broad palette of colors. In the glazed version, Oriental horse is particularly noteworthy for the colorful application of enamels, especially the green turquoise tones of the neck, specifically created for this work. A sculpture full of textures and chromatic effects ideal for lovers of classic porcelain and traditional glazed ceramic.

Decoratively speaking, the Lladro Oriental Horse Glazed Sculpture 01001943 is a profusely ornamented piece. The details of the horse blanket, inspired by the doublet of medieval knights, are a result of the influence of Western culture on the Tang dynasty. The pride with which this horse wears its tack makes this piece a symbol of exclusiveness. The artistic work and technical mastery of its sculptor are combined here to create a sculpture without the porcelain base on which pieces usually rest. Thanks to a perfect command of balance, a dynamic composition full of movement has been achieved with a horse resting only on three legs.

When admiring this majestic horse, it is hard not to agree with experts in oriental sculpture when they wisely claim that you don't have to read a book on Chinese art to love a Tang horse.
