Tang Dynasty Pigment Decorated Groom Figure
A fine red pottery example coated with remnants of original white slip and pigments. This is a rather energetic example with the foreign Grooms left arm up, his hand clutching in a motion as though he is holding the reins tugging a horse, his very expressive face commanding the animal to follow him is a very unusual and powerful example.
Most Tang pottery Grooms were foreigners, often from Central Asia, with characteristic beards, larger noses, rounded eyes and style of dress.
