CERAMIC,PIGMENT, HEIGHT 20CM
A remarkable piece. Horses and riders appear repeatedly in ancient African cultures, but horses were not the ideal means of transportation in tropical forest areas. Most equestrian statues were rather a prestigious symbol, than a true reflection of daily life. My source told me this piece is 700 years old, but I don’t know, I just like it very much. If it is that old, then it might depict invaders from the north.
