See two jade axes of comparable form and size excavated from Inner Mongolia, attributed to the Hongshan culture, published in The Complete Collection of Jades Unearthed in China, vol. 2: Inner Mongolia, Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Beijing, 2005, pls 42-43; and another in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, included in Art in Quest of Heaven and Truth Chinese Jades through the Ages, National Palace Museum, Taipei, 2011, pl. 4-3-1, together with a line drawing illustrating how this type of axes could have been used by holding the narrower end by hand. 


比較內蒙古出土紅山文化玉斧,器形及尺寸與此相類,圖見《中國出土玉器全集》,卷2:內蒙古、遼寧、吉林、黑龍江,北京,2005年,圖版42-43。尚可參考台北故宮藏玉斧,收錄在《敬天格物:中國歷代玉器導讀》,國立故宮博物院,台北,2011年,圖版4-3-1,並有附圖,顯示若無鑽孔,仍可手握玉斧較窄一端使用。
