According to Chinese Feng Shui, a jade ornament may be as a talisman to put in your house and bring you good luck and fortune.This jade ornament is carved in a calabash shape with vines, and it takes a skilled craftsman about a month to complete. In Chinese culture, calabash is the symbol of a prosperous family. 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 popilar 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.
