Screaming presentation in jadeite carving, 焦慮的吶喊 (53)

Carved with jadeite, the object is a 3-centimeter diameter bead showing a screaming face with protroding eyes and open mouth. A hole is seen at the center.

From Wikipedia “The Scream is the popular name given to a composition created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The original German title given by Munch to his work was Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature), and the Norwegian title is Skrik (Shriek). The agonized face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images of art, seen as symbolizing the anxiety of the human condition.images (8)

Scholars have located the spot to a fjord overlooking Oslo (59°54′02.4″N 10°46′12.9″E), and have suggested other explanations for the unnaturally orange sky, ranging from the effects of a volcanic eruption to a psychological reaction by Munch to his sister’s commitment at a nearby lunatic asylum.”《黄帝内经》反复告诫人们要恬淡、寡欲,要内求,自得其乐。自然不會焦慮.
