A pair of similar belt plaques in the Leon Levy and Shelby White Collection was included in the exhibition, Traders and Raiders on China's Northern Frontier, Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., 1995, pp. 146, no. 67. The authors, J. So and E. Bunker, note that a similar plaque was recovered from the second century B.C. cemetary at Xichagou, Xifeng Xian, northern Liaoning province, and that the iconograpy 'has been associated with the tribes that appeared on China's northwestern frontiers in the fourth century B.C. and introduced mounted warfare'.
