Lot nr: 37
Reference: 300-769 (€ 600 - € 800)

During this time period, there was a huge market in bronze secular items, part of a luxury trade in the marketplaces of the Levant. They were made to appeal to consumer taste, including Christians, Muslims, and people with little interest in religious art. As a result, scenes of court life, battle, and hunting - as this piece is probably a reference to - were popular. If this example is similar to others from this place and time, then it may once have had gold and silver inlays.

Provenance: part of a private Belgian collection.

11th-13th century
30.00 cm. W x 19.00 cm. D
