Bactrian camel, terracotta Tang Dynasty. This piece is so expressive!
Pottery of the Tang dynasty
A superbly modelled, painted pottery, figure of a standing camel. The camel with realistically modelled pose, head turning back with mouth open, attacking a playful monkey who is seated on the rear of the large pack which sits between the humps. This is a superb realistic portrayal of a heavily laden camel, an animal that was an important part of China's trading life along the Silk Road.
