Jade Sculpture

Last updated by poyuzhe at 2014/5/2

Guangzhou Jade Sculpture came into being during the middle and later period of the Tang Dynasty. It has a long history of more than 1000 years. It further employed the traditional skill of “ seven color ingenious jade “ in the Song dynasty. On this base it first used the special skill of “retaining the color”, which means keeping the natural color of the jade and appearing to be more exquisite. Jade Sculpture is classified into two groups: jade article ornaments and jade article decoration. The material is generally emerald jade. The productions are divided into ornaments and decoration. Jade article ornaments include jade bracelet, jade ring, jade earrings and Jade Argent Pendant, etc.  Jade article decorations include jade flowers and plants, jade figures, jade birds and animals, jade bottles and jars as well as jade ball, jade gaily-painted pleasure-boat, jade pagoda and Jade incense burner. The eighteen—stories jade cluster lions produced in Guangzhou was awarded the prize in the national science meeting in 1978. Jade ball among Jade article decorations is the most attracting. It can be hollowed out several layers. Big ball contains small ball. The thickness is the same. Every layer can move freely. What’s more, many delicate matching flowers are caved on it. There are mountains and water, flowers and plants, figures, fishes and insects, etc. The image is vivid and true to life. Jade ball has been up to more than twenty layers until now. They form a series of Jade ball sculptures.
