A Jade Carving of Guanyin, the figure standing beside a crane perched on rockwork, clad in long robes, holding prayer beads and a lotus blossom, her hair gathered into a high topknot, the stone a light Celadon green with chestnut inclusions; together with a jade pendant carved as fruiting pomegranate and blossoming prunus, the pale Celadon stone with apple-green inclusions.
