mar 14, 2009 - bronze horse head exhibiting at hotel lisboa

Sunday, March 15, 2009 | AW



The bronze horse head, one of the 12 bronze sculptures of animal heads that formerly guarded a building in Yuanmingyuan Park, the old Imperial Summer Palace, is on show at Hotel Lisboa in Macao.

Macao gaming tycoon Stanley Ho Hung-sun has bought a rare bronze horse head plundered by British and French troops in the 19th century for HK$69.1 million ($8.84 million) and donated it to the motherland.

The sale set a record in the trade of Chinese sculptures from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Ho was ranked 104th on Forbes' list of billionaires this year, with $7 billion in personal wealth.
