Drs. Koos de Jong’s book ‘Dragon & Horse – Saddle Rugs and Other Horse Tack from China and Beyond’ has got a lot of attention from collectors and scholars. The first presentation of his English-Chinese edition took place 27 April 2013 in Utrecht and has already been followed by international presentations and lectures in Hong Kong, Beijing and Baku. More presentations will follow, among them a presentation at the Sartirana Textile Show in September 2013.
The book is about the origin and development of the tack for horses and other riding and pack animals from the 5th century BC up to the 20th century AD and it is based on a research into representations of saddle rugs in Chinese painting, sculpture and applied arts. “It’s amazing. Not just a rug-book, but a real essay on horse riding in China and neighboring countries through the centuries… and so well illustrated. I look forward to the presentation in Sartirana” said Alberto Boralevi, Chair of the ICOC Academic Comittee and organizer of the annual Sartirana Textile Show.
