Bronze Galloping Horse

Bronze Galloping Horse

In 1969, a galloping horse in bronze was unearthed in an Eastern Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) tomb in Wuwei, Gansu province in western China.

The 34.5 cm high bronze horse, covered with spots of verdigris, has a full and robust body. The prancing legs, flying tail, slighly dilated nostrils portray a galloping horse. What is ingenious about it is that one of its hind feet is stepping on a flying swallow. That means the galloping horse is faster than a flying swallow. This also shows the ancient people's love for horses.

Chinese Government has designated it as the symbol of tourism.
