Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures




bi is a flat jade disc sometimes with a circular hole in the centre.  Neolithic bi are undecorated, while those of later periods of China, like the Zhou dynasty, bear ornate surface carving like this one of a mythological creature called a Qilin.


Such a creature can give you prosperity and serenity…. okay, I need that.


A hardwood stand is provided for display.


SOLD!  Thanks M.H. !!
