Carved jade dragons or birds were worn as pendants in ancient China. When the owners died their pendants were buried with them. This piece in the form of a curling dragon was made in the 4th century BC. The small holes on the dragon's back and foot indicate that it was a component piece of a set. At that time fashionable noblemen wore pendant sets made up of ten or more pieces of jades of different shapes.
