Pale yellow-greenish jade with traces of cinnabar. Cut from a flat section of stone tapered slightly from head to foot and finished square at the edges, the surfaces with a moderate polish. The dragon body descends from the straight head in a slow curve tapering only slightly and broadening a little at the blunt-ended tail which begins to turn upwards. Within a raised frame the body is covered with relief curls. The head shows a projecting er, a long curled snout and short angular lower jaw, the mouth being outlined by a ropework band; the eye of FE.28 is oval and that of FE.29 diamond-shaped. There are small perforations for the suspension in the centre of each body. FE.29 has chip on tail.
