齊家文化牙瑗, D. 8cm

本玉瑗白玉雕琢, 外緣向外逐漸磨平並琢齒牙, 齒牙分三等分佈置,意味天地人三才, 每一等分再分四等分, 意味四季風調雨順. 曝露晶面古玉跡象明顯.《古玉圖考》稱此器為「玉璿璣」.

bin2Carved with white jade, the ring can be divided into three sections to represent the heaven, the earth, and the human. Each section has four notches to represent four seasons. The main theme of this jade form is to pray for God to have a good harvest for all time. Exposed crystal is the evidence of antiquity.
