Museum of the Western Han Dynasty Mausoleum of the Nanyue King

It is a piece of jade open-carved on the two sides, found on the left shoulder of the deceased king. The middle is a rectangular frame, with a spiral cloud on the top, and a phoenix at the bottom. The lower beam of the rectangular frame had been broken, but the Nanyue craftsmen cleverly repaired it with two little H-shaped golden bridges, without changing the original style of the ornament.
