Ceramic tomb figure of woman on horseback

Abstract

This tomb figure, probably dating from the early Tang dynasty (7th century), is evidence of a time in China when women were granted great personal freedoms, including riding on horseback. This contrasts with restrictions placed on women in later periods when they were, in theory, to be confined to the house, a constraint furthered by the practice of binding the feet of Chinese women.
