About This Book

The items found in this publication are a small but exceptional sampling of ornamental jades. Ornamental jades were considered carriers of auspiciousness. This tradition of Chinese decorated art started in the Han, was followed by subsequent dynasties and lasted through the Qing Dynasty. Illustrated in this publication are mystical heavenly creatures, Chinese zodiac creatures, animals, plants and other natural creatures, figurines and homophonic symbols.
