Caption

Chinese Jade disc ("bi") and jade delta ornament. The culture of China diverged from that of Europe long ago to produce contrasting forms in stone and metal. Neolithic forms like the "bi disc" survived as cultural icons almost to the present day, the decorated form here suggests a late dynasty while the jade delta piece is in an older zoomorphic taotie style.
