BASENKIN (Horse "Sen" Nishiki)

Among the construction materials used ancient China existed what was called "sen."  Made by firing clay in slab shape, on occasion a particularly wonderful image was achieved through the casting process.  In this work, one of the so-called "sen images," a thing of rare beauty of the Chinese Han Dynasty,  we see a braying horse flying high in the heavens with a phoenix-like mythical firebird goddess, with a life-like quality of freshness and vitality.  The work, intricately woven with gold thread and gold leaf, attempts to capture the crowning glory of engraved line on Nishiki, full of life itself.
