Description
A White and Russet Jade Mythical Beast, Han Dynasty (private English collection)

crouched and ready for the hunt, its head slightly raised showing its bulging eyes and its sharp fangs tucked in its open mouth, as well as its curled horns. Its chest proudly bulges outwards, akin to that of an apex predator, its legs powerfully built, with its back curved in a feline fashion as if ready to pounce. The tail of the beast is long, curling smoothly around its rear, its body carved with three pairs of feathered wings along its flank. The white stone with heavy russet inclusions

Provenance: private English collection
