LITTLE HIDDEN DRAGON

I am ringing in Lunar New Year 2012 with this tiny jade dragon. This is no ferocious fire spitting dragon. He is quiet and mysterious - he must be Hidden Dragon :))


Measuring 3.5 cm x 0.8cm it is indeed a tiny dragon you may also call it  Kid dragon :))  Made from a thin slab of yellow jade its zoomorphic appearance seems to   indicate a very early birth. It may even be considered a Shang or Zhou hopeful ( 13th-10th centuryBC). Here's the reverse view of hidden, kid dragon


Look at it from upside down, and its still the auspicious dragon that I so love !



I had it attached to a Chinese silk cord and it is all ready to wear and greet the new year.


And here is an illuminated view of jade dragon


O Hidden Kid Dragon my wish is for Health and Happiness to All this Lunar New Year !

  1. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But just imagine if you added some great pictures
    or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Excellent blog!
