Terracotta Clay Camel And Peasant Rider

  • Watson Pl, Framingham, MA
  • 1

This work of art is graceful and meaningful at the same time. Many articles out there regarding Chinese Art History talk about the significance of a rider on a camel. Some believe these are part of a long expedition along the Silk road and others just think the rider and camel are part of a burial ritual to allow the deceased to ride forever on the back of his camel. This emphasizes protection and transportation. As far as the age of this artwork, i can't be sure. The workmanship is very detailed and nothing has been chipped or broken. I have had this piece in my possession for about 35 years. They are 5 1/2" log from front to back of the camel and just short of 8" tall to the head of the rider. No smell to speak of, and nothing loose on the surface. Sits well and even on any surface.
