There is a primal power about this polished figure, created from superb mottled jade. With abstract simplicity, it represents a human figure crowned by a double serpent head. Does this depict a God or merely a person wearing a ceremonial mask? In either case, the impression is one of magical, supernatural energy, of a being with more than ordinary powers. Even in a world that follows other path, we intuitively sense the magic aura of this piece. - (PF.2164)
