在中國文字中, 鷹, 熊與英雄同音, 此外, 鷹係飛禽中的強者, 而熊係走獸中的強, 漢代國力強大, 玉器中, 以鷹及熊為主題者十分常見. 本器青玉雕琢, 形制為玉鷹, 翅膀肥碩, 強勁有力, 嘴巴延伸為飛天羽毛, 貼在腹部形成一孔, 可能作為掛環之用, 古玉跡象為擴散暈沁色及差異風化. In the Chinese characters, eagle and bear have the same pronunciation of hero. Eagle is powerful in birds while the beer is powerful in the beasts. The Han Dynasty is a great dynasty in the Chinese history. As a result, eagle and bear are very popular jade motifs. Carved with green tone jade, the object is eagle with bosom and strong wings, the beat has extended with a flying feather to connect the chest to form a hole for hanging. Antiquity evidences include diffusive markings and differential weathering.
