Originale oggetto da collezione in giada naturale, nefrite, intagliato a mano, a forma di animale mitologico.
Questa piccola statua è la riproduzione delle più famose giade di Hongshan.
Originari della cultura neolitica Hongshan, sviluppatasi in Cina -in quella regione che ora viene definita come Manciuria- tra il 4700 ed il 2900 a.C., sono i primi reperti realizzati a mano in giada, pietra dalla straordinaria storia per questa antichissima cultura, definita da sempre ‘la pietra più bella’ (dal primo dizionario cinese pubblicato intorno al 100 d.C.), considerata sinonimo di ricchezza e potere, ed alla quale vennero attribuiti poteri rituali.

Era in grado di contrastare la decomposizione del defunto, e per questo inserita anche nei corredi funerari, impedendo la dispersione di una delle due anime,nella quale esistenza credevano gli antichi cinesi.
Le figure riprodotte erano legate al mondo circostante, per questo tante di esse raffigurano animali quali tartarughe, rane, uccelli rapaci, tigri, a significare l’origine tratta da una società di agricoltori ed allevatori: tra queste,la più significativa ed evocativa è quella che gli studiosi chiamano Zhulong, drago-maiale o maiale-drago, animale composito dal corpo di serpente avvolto su se stesso e testa di maiale, che dimora tra le nuvole e passa il suo sonno nelle profondità della terra.
Il drago, essere mitologico, è emblema di fertilità e potere, rappresentazione dell’Imperatore e divenuto in seguito il simbolo della Cina stessa.
In questa forma, quasi fetale, è quindi naturale associarlo al culto della fertilità, ed alla forma originaria dalla quale poi si è sviluppato il drago delle leggende tradizionali cinesi. Tali oggetti pare avessero principalmente un valore ed uso ornamentale e propiziatorio.

Original collectible item in natural jade – nephrite – carved by hand to represent a mythological creature.
This small statue is a reproduction of the most famous Hongshan jades, in anthropomorphic form.
Originating in the Neolithic Hongshan culture, which developed in China in the region now called Manciuria between 4700 and 2900 BC, these are the first findings crafted out of jade, a stone that has an extraordinary meaning for this ancient culture. The jade has been defined ‘the most beautiful stone’ in the first Chinese dictionary published around 100 AD, and since then it has been considered a synonym of wealth and power, and something to which were attributed rituals powers.
It was able to counteract the decomposition of the deceased, and for this very reason the jade was also included between the traditional funerary objects, preventing the loss of one of the two souls, in which the ancient Chinese people believed.
The illustrations depicted on the stone were mostly related to the world that surrounded them and this is why so many of them depict animals such as turtles, frogs, birds of prey and tigers, signifying an origin which came from a society of farmers and ranchers: among these, the most significant and evocative is the piece scholars call the Zhulong, the dragon-pig or pig-dragon, a composite animal featuring the body of a snake wrapped around itself and a pig’s head which dwells in the clouds and spends his sleep in the depths of the earth.
The dragon, mythological being, is a symbol of fertility and power, representation of the Emperor and which later became the symbol of China itself.
This almost fetal form is therefore naturally associated with the cult of fertility and to its original form, from which then developed the traditional Chinese legends of the dragon.
These objects seem to have primarily a value and use as both a propitiatory and ornamental item.
