Carved wood decoration element. China, early 20th century


Very fine carved wood decoration element, traces of gilt and polychromy, depicting two warriors pursuing each other on horse. The finesse and the details of sculpture are quite remarkable. The two armoured cavalrymen and their spirited charging horses are presented in full gallop in a frantic race across a tormented landscape. The first cavalryman holds a young child in his arms while another person on foot stays close to the second cavalryman.
