This is a stele carved with one of the Twelve Zodiac Animal Deities. The horse deity, represented as a human figure with a horse’s head standing on a rock, looks imposing. Its armor is exquisitely and realistically portrayed. It is presumed to be an early example of a statue of one of the Twelve Zodiac Animal Deities.
