It is highly desirable to have the attendant with the horse. The Tang Empire saw a flowering of creativity in many fields. Science and technology, art, music, painting, pottery, calligraphy, literature and religion all enjoyed a golden age, a flourishing era unprecedented in Chinese history. Painting and sculpture were of the finest quality as eminent artists produced their work for an ever-increasing elite in the thriving cities.
The Tang Empire justifiably became the largest, richest, most sophisticated state in the world at that time. Greatly and widely admired abroad, The Tang influence spread into Asia, Europe, and Africa. Neighboring countries sought and established ties with the empire and Chang’an became the center of cultural exchange between the East and the West.
