東漢和田青玉出廓龍紋榖紋璧, 長度35.7公分,圓直徑26.5公分,厚0.8公分.本器和田青玉雙面對稱雕琢, 形制為出廓玉璧, 出廓部分為鏤空龍鳳紋; 玉璧分為三區, 以淺浮雕為之;外區為飾榖紋, 邊緣以管鑽進行游絲毛雕為之; 中間區飾戰國風格狩獵紋; 內區飾如意雲紋。本器設計內涵耐人尋味:榖紋意味五穀豐收,狩獵紋意味驅除野獸以便得以安居,中間的如意雲紋璧表示最終便能稱心如意了。本器圖騰,將狩獵的活動表現得栩栩如生,獵人或持矛,或持弓,或騎虎,令人有身歷其境的感覺;本器線條細膩婉轉柔和華麗,令人想一看再看,如此玉器,能說不是國寶嗎?!  本器古玉跡象主要為鈣化, 溶蝕孔,  冰裂紋及差異風化等。(台灣頤和園博物館藏品, 陳明杰鑑賞並撰文)

Carved with green tone Hetian jade, the object is a bi disk with top annex structure which is decorated with open work dragon motif. The bi proper may be viewed with three sections. All motifs are designed with low relief carving. The outer section is decorated with crop motif carved with tube drilling tool. The middle section is decorated with hunting scene. There are three hunters: one hunting serpent with spear, one hunting dogs with arrow and bow, one riding on a tiger.  The  depiction is  so vividly done to  let the viewers felt that they are in the scene. The carving is in great detail and nice curving. Antiquity evidences are calcification, dissolved pits, cleaving veins and differential weathering. (The Peace Garden Museum Collection.
