An Antique Horse Cart Pointer from Burma

(circa 1800s)


This rather large horse cart pointer is of Burmese origin and probably from the 1800's although it could be older. The mythical half bird and half human figure is responsible for guiding the horse driven cart and appears to be traveling as fast as the wind with very sweeping lines. This is a large horse cart pointer that measures 85 cm in total length, and weighs just over 14 kilograms.
