I have wandered round the house today taking a few photos of some Indian items I inherited when my mother died. I noticed that on our staircase which has a small half landing is stood a 'Bankura Terracotta Horse'. This was shipped home to the UK from Calcutta in around 1975 by sea in a wooden crate packed with wood shavings. The horse is black I think there is a red variety as well. I understand that they are made in West Bengal, this one was purchased in Calcutta around 1970 it could have even been during the 1960s.
As you can see my mother maybe has decorated him with some beads around his neck and he is also decorated with a scarf around his neck. From the ground to the tips of his ears he measures some 3 feet and 9 inches so it is a fairly large ornament but they do come in bigger sizes as well.
His ears have been damaged over the years and have been glued back together, he is doing quite well as he is over 40 years old. Hope you like him.
