From the mausoleum of Tang Taizong at Zhaoling in Xi’an China. Dated to the Tang Dynasty around 649 CE. The horse depicted here is named Curly. Portrayed in paintings with a wavy coat of saffron-yellow hair, he was instrumental in suppressing a dangerous uprising. Although there are nine arrows, six in the front and three in the back sticking out of his body, the horse is shown walking briskly and with a spirit that defies his wounds.
