Detailed description

Sculpture "The Flying Horse of Gansu", bronze

The pride-filled nobles had their horses depicted on the reliefs of their tombs or as bronze casts. When Chinese archaeologists opened a Han tomb near Wuwei in Gansu Province along the old Silk Road in 1969 and discovered this horse, the magnificent work took their breath away. It is now one of the most valuable art treasures in the world. The figure balances on a swallow with its head vividly expressing mettlesome vigour.
