Chinese fat horse bronze ( XL)
This bronze sculpture in bronze possesses a meaning strength of an unusual intensity. Inspired by the tombs sculptures of the dynasty Tang (618-907), the artist voluntarily represented a body, powerful, disproportionate with regard to the head, to glorify the strength horses raised for the military stud farms of emperors Tang. We can estimate the number of horses raised in these stud farms to approximately 5000 heads at the beginning of the dynasty and 700 000 from the environment of the VIIth century.
