This jade duck was sculpted using a yellow nephrite and its head, belly, and feet are dark brown in color. The jade duck features remarkably simple sculpting techniques. However, its physical features (i.e., lifted tail and rounded bottom) were accurately portrayed to evoke a sense of adorability and liveliness.
