118-029 Antique Rare Chinese Ceramic Longma Statue (Dragon Horse)

This is a rare, antique, ceramic statue of the mythical creature Longma, the dragon horse. It is a symbol of longevity, fertility and prosperity. It represents a merging of the sky and the earth. Dragon horses were born by mares who drank water from rivers inhabited by dragons. Dragon horse can also refer to a vigorous, eminent, person of old age. In traditional Chinese spiritual text, the Longma is known as ( qi ) the vital spirit of Heaven and Earth. The Longma is a celestial, auspicious, creature who guides Emperors and reveals maps which make the way forward easily attainable to the pure at heart.
           This is a very rare piece I acquired from a Chinese merchant in Bangkok in 1980. I have never seen another Longma piece as elegant and radiant as this one. I was told it would bring me good fortune and a long life.
