英文說明:

Carved with yellow tone jade, the bi’s structure is divided into two parts: the jade bi prime and its extension attachment. On the top of the extension, there is a phoenix surrounded by a circle to imply that the phoenix flying in the sky.  The lower part is God’s face. At the outer section of the bi is a square structure to mean the earth. The whole bi’s meaning is that God will protect the land of the Han empire forever. Both sides are carved with scripts from the Luntai decree of Emperor Han.  Differential weathering, diffusive markings, and calcification are obvious. This bi is exquisitely carved, with rich historical contents. It is a national treasure-level large-scale rare jade bi of the Han Dynasty.
