A WHITE JADE CIRCULAR FIGURAL PENDANT

The thick plaque is well carved in the round as a seated figure wearing heavy robes and a wide belt that he holds with his hands. His finely incised hair flares out onto his shoulders and is also dressed in two topknots in front of a bat with spread wings. There is some opaque white mottling in the semi-translucent white stone.
