古玉界 4月3日

瑞兽造形融合现实与想象,线条流利优雅,满富韵律感,曲直之间,勾勒猛兽慑人姿态,兽身细琢阴刻,浮雕纹饰隐约,刚柔并济,气势万千。

存世兽形佩虽大同小异,然现例之腿部以阴刻曲线做凤鸟纹与龙纹,独树一格,突显当朝常贝鸟兽纹羽状、曲卷的特征,设计流畅简约,精练脱俗,无冗赘之处,寥寥数笔已明确捕捉神兽气韻。

Integrated with reality and imagination,  the auspicious animal has been carved with elegant and gracious lines.  Full of rhythmic feeling, the curved and straight presentation has depicted the animal fierce posture. The total curving of motifs has vaguely shown that mixed with strong and soft elements full of variation.

While exiting jade plaques with similar shape and size are common, this jade plaque is unique that the intaglio phoenix and dragon motif on the jade plaque is marvelously present the characteristics of Eastern Zhou Dynasty style. With all these excellent elements, this jade plaque worth the price it settles at this Sotheby spring auction.
