紅山文化玉髮箍, Hongshan Culture Jade Hook, H.7cm, W.5.5cm

 

 

本器紅山文化髮箍, 有些文獻稱為馬蹄形器. 實際的功能尚無定論, 一說是紅山人的髮箍, 一說是引導死者靈魂通往天堂的神器.  本器紅山文化髮箍與馬形象之結合加強了後者之涵義,  髮箍與馬首及馬前足結合, 前足向後彎曲, 呈奔馳狀, 表示快速引導死者靈魂通往天堂. The function of Hongshan Culture jade hook is unknown. Two theories are common. One theory claims that it is a hair fastening tool, the other theory is that it is a medium to guide the soul of the people passed away to the heaven. The left object here strengthen the later theory by attaching the horse image to the hook to make the soul ‘s transmission to the heaven with the speed of horse galloping.

Proverb: Punctuality is the soul of business.
