    The most famous is the Chinese Flying Horse statue dating from the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD). As part of China's national heritage, the Flying Horse statue highlights the ancient Chinese sculpture and represents the highest level of art. The whole bronze sculpture is only supported by a horseshoe touching lightly on a flying swallow. It is because the craftsmen calculated the exact center of gravity and thus made the whole sculpture stable, the artwork depicts the spirited and heroic look of the horse. Now this sculpture is very popular with many people who also love the image of this classic bronze carving, with its three feet floating in the sky. 

    China's Tang Dynasty (618–907) horse sculpture is also very characteristic, from the tombs of Taizong Tang (named Shimin Li) it well reflects the horse breeds that the people at that time preferred. The horse is round and magnificent, the legs are flexible and powerful and the eyes look intense. 

    People still love horses and horse sculptures are also very popular these days. Here we introduce some fine artworks of modern horse statues, the first being a replica of the Chinese Flying Horse statue.

The horses head and the muscles on the body and other details are shown athletically. The facial expression of the horse even reflects its arrogance when it is running.

He bows his head down slightly, with a reserved look in his eyes, the ears erect to keep aware of the surroundings and with its tail curled up it is enjoying the leisurely walk.
