This garment is made by eight pieces of jade that are connected by an iron rod in the middle. The head of the hook is a dragon and the end is a tiger. The carving of the tiger's bulging eyes, straight nose, sharp teeth, beard and thick eyebrows are sophisticated. The body is a mixture of dragon and tiger, with scales, fins and clouds on top of it. The button has a flat cylindrical shape. The hook is stained by the rusted iron rod.
