Painted Huren Hunter on Horseback Fighting with a Leopard
 

Tang Dynasty

30.5 centimeters high

Unearthed from the tomb of Princess Yongtai, Qianxian County, Xianyang City, Shaanxi Province in 1960

A ferocious leopard leaped on the horse's hips, with its mouth opening and its claws waving. The Huren turned sideways to grab the leopard behind him with his left hand, glared at him, and raised his right hand to strike. It truly reflects the hunting scene of the royal nobility in the Tang Dynasty.
