physical_description
Light grey jade semi-calcified, in the shape of a bird, carved from a thin plaque tapered towards the edges, especially of the tail and crest. The bird has a hammer-shaped beak, long, bifurcated tail and claws at the front. Details are indicated by shallow grooves drawn on the surface with a circle for the eye, a crest, swept-back wings and bifurcation of the tail. The two sides are similar. Small perforcation at the breast, presumably for suspension.
