Details

Japanese wood ema (votive offering plaque); the surface decorated with a rearing figure of a gilt horse set against a black lacquer ground. Ema (meaning "horse picture"), are painted wood plaques left by pilgrims at Shinto shrines to garner favor with the gods. Admired for their strength, speed and sprit, horses are believed to act as messengers and intermediaries between the temporal world and the Shinto Gods.
