Camel with Majestic Tang Pose 7.1cm

Suggested Attribution:

Size: 7.1cm

Rarely can the adjectives, majestic and regal, be used in regard to a Chinese jade camel, but somehow they come to mind when viewing this head-held-high creature baring his teeth.  It captures and shares those characteristics with the marvelous ceramic camels of the Tang times; times during which Bactrian camels connected China to Xinjiang and Silk Road points west as never before, and these camels and artisans inherently skilled in their representation occupied the Tang realm as never before.  We propose this camel was created by one of them.
