Lot 0077
Astounding Gilt bronze horse saddle constructed from hardwood. The horse is known in ancient times to symbolize perseverance, speed, power, and strength. The gilt decorations are so intricate that it demands attention as it would indicate the high rank of the person who strode atop this master-craft. The frontal area delineates a twisted dragon hovering above a Shan Mountain range flanked on both sides by similar dragons moving through a cloud-filled sky. This cloud-filled expanse with flying dragons continues throughout the entire design. Each wooden component is lashed together using a very strong cord that is strung through corresponding voids. Amazing condition with a natural patina giving this piece an unforgettable appearance.
