ARCHAISTIC JADE HUMAN-HEADED BEAST

Unusual motif of human-headed four-footed beast in Zhou dynasty style with overall surface design imitating Shang style "raised thread" work, the curled tail with suspension hole, another hole bored vertically from top and bottom and meeting in the middle, the nephrite jade light to medium tan with face and feet darker. Attractive and unique. Other views here and here.
