Apparently these horses were one of the most important and lavish grave goods items in 7th Century China.

I was absolutely stunned to discover that it's possible to own something this old. This one is in a gallery, and of course galleries and musea have such things. But I recently found one in a coin-collectors' shop in London. Not quite so pretty (standing on all four legs) but in unmistakably the same style, and for £950. That's a lot of money, but for something that's over 1,000 years old..! I don't know how much this one with the raised foreleg would cost, but I WANT ONE!
