A PALE CELADON JADE CARVING OF A MYTHICAL BEAST
QING DYNASTY, 18TH CENTURY
seated on the haunches with rounded belly and front legs outstretched, each emitting a wisp of qi flowing and folding in openwork over the body like a pair of wings, the face with large round eyes, bushy brows, ruyi-shaped nose and flat snout, the long pointed ears flattened against the head, the tail carved as a thick swirl of fur, the translucent stone a celadon-white with a few small patches of russet
Length 2 3/8  in., 6 cm
