Gift of Alma and Dorothy Spreckels

terracotta relief with figural composition of a horse and rider rendered in the round. The high relief of the mounted figure rested on a projection, almost shelflike, from the body of the jar and was secured by dowels to holes on the plaque. Several reliefs may have decorated a large funerary vessel. Traces of polychrome still visible, including Egyptian blue. Pair with 1926.148.
