Why this is a
Masterpiece

Besides its artistic value, this grave figure also conveys interesting historical information about how the Chinese used the horse for transport, trade, and communication.

History of the Object
Clay figures placed in graves reflect Chinese society with its peasants and mandarins, its emperor and court. They were deposited as gifts to the deceased. Through the grave goods of the Han and Tang eras, we can learn about life in China at that time.
