紅山文化勾形龍珮. 長9.5cm, 寬6.5cm,厚0.3cmStill_2017-11-11_160338_60X_N0057

本件紅山文化勾形龍佩構圖簡單, 在厚度不到半公分的C形薄玉片上, 透過多重斜坡的方式, 將C龍的神態表現得淋漓盡致. 角度較方形且較寬的是龍頭, 較圓形且較窄的是龍尾. 龍頭部份兩面則有兩道帶有弧度的淺溝紋, 在第二道溝紋上緣三分之一的地方, 有一不規則的孔, 孔外緣及內部的旋轉細紋, 歷歷可見. 本器之材質為白玉, 全器已呈鈣化, 表面有差異風化及外部增生晶體現象. 此器可能是中國片狀玉雕之先河.cdragonplaque2

Despite its simple design, the artifact has expressed the art quality perfectly on a thin piece jade less than a half centimeter in thickness. The wider square end is the head and the narrower round end is the tail of the C shape dragon. On the head, there are two curved shallow lines. A hole with irregular drilling traces is seen in one third of the line next to the edge of the head. It is made of white tone jade which has been calcified completely. Differential weathering and ancient tool marks are seen. The plaque of C dragon may be the origin of Chinese plaque jade works for the later periods.
