In the West, we do not always associate the horse with ancient Chinese history, and yet it was a vital part of the culture, and accordingly represented in artworks of remarkable ingenuity. Illustrated with 164 color photographs, this exhibition catalogue features a stunning range of objects related to the horse in Chinese art, including a tiny jade horse head, a pair of earthenware cavalrymen, an ornate bronze food container for horses, 3,000-year-old bronze fittings from chariots, and even horse statues buried with Qin Shi Huang's famed terra cotta army. The introductory texts extensively cover the significance of horses in Imperial Chinese history, and a timeline and pronunciation guide are included as well.
