This beautifully carved dark green jade pendant represents a solemn anthropomorphic figure, which exudes a graceful timelessness. The smoothly carved and polished surface of the jade pendant indicates a fine craftsmanship and religious effort to create the magical jade pendant. Worn by chieftains and shamans during ritualistic ceremonies, the vibrant power and magic of the jade pendant was applied to bring prosperity and abundance. Such precious amulets also indicated rank and authority of chieftains who wore the prized pendant. The deep, dark green of the jade pendant has a mesmerizing quality that feels poignant and hypnotizing. Perhaps such mystical qualities gave the wearer of the pendant a sense of strength and power even across the obstacles of time and culture, as this finely carved jade amulet's grace, power, and magic are undeniably evident today. - (PF.3001)
