Archaic and antique jades
This outstanding piece offers rich decorations in raised Relief, in the best quality and worked on both sides are completely different! And what increases the attraction of this small Bi also still a lot - it is likely to be a probably archaic smooth Bi, which was revised, as was customary at the time. The a side of this Bi offers a beautifully crafted relief decoration from quite loosely archaic, and partly from other motives, scattered, part. Of course, the nostalgic C-shape velvet versions (up to V), or a small spiral with a long tail, a comet. Some even to the ear or to the demons face (mouth and Horn), so it looks. But there are also triangles, a sheet, or a Structure is equal to a tip of the hat. And it's all made as if it would fly! Refined. Peaceful is only the small icon of a star over all. The other side is strict. Here, bull-heads (or the Taotie inspired) exercise with horns from the nose and Pliers in the same mantises. Rod-shaped motifs bird heads wear. The inner Opening of grouped C’s, and crown, in turn, are similar to caps or hats. A total of the Fantastic in-depth design, which is very unusual! With corresponding increase in the age of this Jade is unmistakable, they are also given stronger corrosive, especially in the edge of the area. Even more astonishing is the fine quality of the Revision.
