Tianma (天馬 Tiānmǎ, "heavenly horse") was a flying horse in Chinese folklore.
In the Western Zhou Empire, Tianma referred to a constellation. Tianma is also associated with the Han dynasty emperor Wudi, an aficionado of the Central Asian horse. The bronze statue, Gansu Flying Horse, is a well-known example.
