This piece of carved jade is an combination of a baby swine and a baby dragon. The swine-dragon is well considered as the origin of the oriental dragon concept. It is a typical jade form dating back to China’s Neolithic age, 7,000-10,000 years ago. If you’d like to know more, check out this link:
This piece is a lovely replica. I have paired it with 2 silver grey nugget pearls and a black leather cord… literally putting pearls before swine, to create this heartwarming necklace, truly one of a kind.
The silver pearls: 12-16mm
The baby swine-dragon pendant: 45mmX36
Necklace length: 34” (86cm)
