Fragmentary figure of a horse modelled in clay on a core of straw and wood and painted brown with white patches on the sides of the neck and quarters and black spots over all (the tail and the rear legs are missing). The saddle is decorated with palmette and rosette motifs, and has two strips of white silk hanging on the sides, which were probably originally holding the stirrups.
