Chinese jades

Jade carving of a mythical creature with attributes of a lion and a stag.

I have been awed by the intricate details carved into blocks of this hard stone. The combination of the intricate carving and the stone’s natural coloration is beautiful.

These photos are from the lobby of a hotel in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China where I have stayed on my way to and from visiting my son.
