carved in the form of a recumbent camel modelled with head turn over the shoulder, its lips parted showing its teeth, legs tucked under the body with its tail curled up alongside its left hind leg, the long stretched neck and twin-humps elegantly rendered and embellished with fine incised lines, the stone of white tone with russet inclusion
A similarly modelled yellow jade camel is in the collection of the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Jadeware (III), The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Hong Kong, 1995, p. 112, pl. 92, where its function was described to be a brushrest, paper weight or an object for display and appreciation.
