Phoenix Reborn: Chu Jades Excavated from Hubei, Art Museum

This bilingual guidebook showcases jades excavated in Hubei Province from tombs dated from the Zhou Dynasties to mid- and late Warring States. Among them, 17 pieces were unearthed from tombs in Guojiamiao, Shanwan, Wangpo and Zeng, and 32 pieces from Jiuliandun. Taken together, they demonstrate the stylistic features, functionality and development history of jades in Hubei Province in the ancient Kingdom, and display the distinct features of the culture of Chu jades and its interrelationship with the jades of Zeng.
