Color-painted Hu tribesman riding a camel

© Tang West Market Museum

The Middle Eastern man with pointed soft hat, thick eyebrows, deep eyes, big nose and a beard is donning a red vest and black trousers with pointed boots. He is holding the reins of the camel with his legs clamped on the camel. The camel with two humps has its head raised and seems to be walking with its mouth open, teeth exposed and mane swinging in the wind. The statue is big in size and is crafted splendidly; It is a rare masterpiece amongst the statues from the Tang Dynasty.
