More info
In China, jade carving dates back to the late Old Stone Age. By the late New Stone Age, jade ornamens such as bi (pierced disc), zhui (pendants), earrings and beads had appeared. In the Shang and Zhou dynasties(11th century B.C.-256B.C), jade articles were used as ritual objects and symbols of personal morality or political authority. Jade has been cherished by the Chinese as a symbol of many virtues. Its hardness suggests firmness and loyalty, and its luster projects purity and beauty.Typical of jade carving are flowers, birds, animals, vases, incense burners, and human figures, especially beautiful women from popular fairy tales and legends. The skill of the craftsman is shown in his ability to make the best use of the natural color and the shape of the raw material. This jade carving is about an excited ox and it is carved by a skilled crafteman. The process is very complicated, so it always takes a skilled craftsman about several months to complete. According to Chinese Fengshui, if you choose jade ornament as a talisman to place in the house or office, it will bring you good luck and fortune.
