A lovely statue of a Ming Dynasty horseman, likely a part of the larger group of consisting a parade of musicians and soldiers. The horseman has the drumstick in his hand and a small drum on the side. His head is detachable, as customary for larger Ming attendant statues and there are traces of sancai-glaze on the surface of the horse and the rider. The remaining glaze can be seen on the saddle, the reins of the horse, on the sleeves and the drum of the horseman. Horse’s mane, hooves and head have traces of black pigment. The statue is set on an integral rectangular base.
