Collected in the late 1980s by August Flick, a noted Indonesian textile collector from Cologne. Flick's widow sold it to Frank Wiggers, Oceanic arts dealer, in 1996. Several field photographs of the figure came with the piece. Dr. Achim Sibeth, chief curator of the Frankfurt Volkerkunde Museum, visited the village where the equestrian figure was collected and reported that a replacement horse had been erected in the same place. He mentioned that people had "a sense of satisfaction" in knowing that the original horse was on display in a museum in America.
Field photographs of the equestrian figure have been published in Leigh-Theisen, Heide et al, INDONESIEN, Kunstwerke-Weltbilder, Linz: Landesmuseum, 1999;
