A recumbent beast was shown with its head turned back and slightly tilting upwards.
The Bixie was well carved with protruding eyes, ruyi-shaped nose, curved ears and single-horned head.
By vividly depicted ribs on its abdomen and the flouring hairs of the tails, the fairy beast was rest on the flat bottom in plain form-an important characteristic for early jade carvings.

The jade pebble was in black and brown fissures and markings and in greasy and warm feel.

Date: Yuan Dynasty,1279-1368.

Width:5.1cm, Height:3.4cm.


It is one of my cherished pieces that I wrote a verse to adore it.
Anyone who may be interested to correct my wordings will be very much appreciated.
