Inextricably linked with Chinese civilization, jade played an essential, constituent role as a founding element in Chinese culture. Techniques of carving, the functions of the objects, and even the values related to jade were established during China’s period of formation, which spans the late Neolithic period to the age of the early empires. This is exactly the period to which the jades presented in RADIANT STONES belong: from the fourth millennium B.C.E. to the fourth century C.E., from the Neolithic period to the Han and Western Jin dynasties. In hundreds of color images, RADIANT STONES presents the ancient jades from the world-esteemed collection of Myrna and Samuel Myers. A catalog of ancient jades from the collection of Myrna and Samuel Myers. Includes full-page color plates of all the jades.
