This Painted Pottery Bull and Cart are in Excellent Overall Condition, c. 550-577 AD. This Piece is Representative of the Northern Qi Period from China, Featuring Earthware with Pigments. Painted Pottery figure of an ox and cart resting on a shaped, narrow plinth. Sturdy figure of a caparisoned ox standing foursquare, head upraised, handsomely embellished with bossed trappings and secured to a canopied cart with two large detachable wheels with unusual petal form spikes radiating from the center. Such elaborate conveyances were reserved for the aristocracy and as such were elaborately decorated and the ox lavishly adorned with gilt metal fixtures and silk embellishments.
