White Jade Incised Bi Disc

About

With its speckled cream color and perfectly round form, this jade disc has a certain celestial quality, like a full moon gleaming in the night sky. Known as “bi,” these round discs with a circular hole in the centre date all the way back to the Neolithic era. Found in the tombs of ancient Chinese emperors and aristocrats, bi discs have a mysterious and spiritual history, and their function and significance remain unknown. This contemporary bai jade bi disc is finely carved with subtle spiral patterns, floating on the surface like tiny clouds.
