Description
A beautiful couple of Sancai-Glazed Pottery Ram and Bull. The animals are skilfully crafted, with the bodies rendered in brown, and details (such as the head of the bull) rendered in white. The glazing gives to the figures a remarkably elegant appearance, and the firing at high temperature typical of the technique of Sancai glazing surely contributed to the exceptional state of preservation of these artefacts.

Sancai glazing developed into an art form under the Tang Dynasty, and became noted for some of the most exquisite tomb ware and ritual pieces. - (LA.522)
