The present plaque is an excellent representation of Eastern Zhou dynasty jade craftsmenship, At once powerful and fine, elegant and subtle, the carving demonstrates the Eastern Zhou craftsmen's mastery of manipulation of the material as well as the advanced development of complex and dynamic designs.
