紅山文化崇尚大自然, 掌管大自然的神祇應該也就成為崇拜的對象, 陽光, 空氣和水是萬物生命不可或缺的原素, 太陽神應該就是紅山文化所崇拜的對象. 本器青黃玉雕琢, 眼睛碩大呈水滴形, 狀似外星人, 耳朵寬大向兩側張開, 嘴唇扁平寬大, 頭部向上拉長, 中央有兩個開口的孔, 形狀如二角, 頸部背面有兩個內部貫穿的象鼻孔, 雙手握拳置於腰部, 雙腳相連形成孔狀體. 本器之設計巧妙具神秘感, 古玉跡象為擴散暈沁色及鈣化. Carved with apple green tone jade, the object is as__3416082statue of Hongshan Culture sun god. Having shape of water drop, the eye is big. The ears are wide open.
