Magnificent Tang Dynasty Pottery Bactrian Camel & Foreign Rider worthy of any International Museum. China (618-907 A.D.) T.L. Tested for Authenticity. A monumental artifact that expresses great motion. The camel stands four square on a plinth has head raised and mouth open with his tail swinging. The foreign rider is very detailed with pointed cap and beard with one arm raised. A small amount of the original paint remains on the camel. This piece is in excellent condition and measures 28 inches high x 11 inches wide x 21 inches from head to tail. The domesticated Bactrian camel has served as a pack animal in inner Asia since ancient times. It has two humps in contrast with the single-humped dromedary camel. With its tolerance for cold, drought, and high altitudes, it enabled travel such as the caravans of the Silk Road.
