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. Typical of jade carving are flowers, birds, animals, vases, incense burners, and human figures, especially beautiful women from popilar fairy tales and legends.
