Jade Dragon

The Palace Museum

The dragon is carved from pale-green jade. The dragon’s body is curved in a C shape. The raised nose of the dragon protrudes forward; this feature has led to the moniker Jade Pig-Dragon. The exaggerated style is unique and includes realistic and abstract features. The structure of the jade allows for a simple, yet vivid, portrayal. The piece reflects a plan, rough beauty; it is typical of the primitive clan-period.
