Jade Carving

Last updated by shashik at 2014/5/3

Suzhou is one of the original centers of jade carvings in China. The carved and polished Jade Huang ( a semi-annular jade pendant) and  Jade Fu (the jade bend down) have been found in the middle and upper strata of Meiyan ancient cultural relics in Chaoxie (sandal) Mountain, Wujiang in the Wu Country. They are about five or six thousand years old and these are the earliest jade finds in China up to now. 

The Suzhou jade carvings are characterized by exquisite workmanship. The Sozhou jade carvings are of two types, plane or three dimensional; the design is based on the material available and the fine carvings are done with suitable skill.
