Seller: artancientltd (9,479) 99.4%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201031115065 An ancient Near Eastern bronze figure of an embracing couple seated on horseback, produced around 1000 BC. A rare, tender and beautifully abstract scene. The figures reduced to the essence of form, their features anonymous, but with their hands looped round to meet at the centre. Both seated on a horse, the animals legs and tail have been shorted though the head is large and stylised, with lightly incised eyes and reins running from the mouth. This wonderful piece has a touching humanity that transcends age or culture. The artist has intentionally disregarded the need for figural accuracy, using this absence to emphasise the emotive nature of the scene. In a sense the detail is unimportant, rather the love and affection takes precedence. The effect is tangible, allowing us to feel the connection with its creator. A beautifully touching piece, reflecting a powerful human sentiment rarely displayed in Near Eastern art from this period. Height: 1 7/8 inches. Height mounted: 2 3/8 inches. Length: 2 1/4 inches. Condition: Good, with wear and encrustation synonymous with an ancient artefact. Mounted on a bespoke bronze stand and unrestored. Provenance: Ex. British private collection, acquired 1990's, London.
