Bi-disc with Phoenix and Dragon carvings
What a beautiful sight is this bi-disc with its raised dragon and phoenix carvings and warm red-brown colours!
Bi-discs are very versatile decorative objects in combination with other decorations to create a stunning setting in your interior. You can hang them on the wall, frame them, or put them on a stand and combine several colours and different sizes. This way they enforce each other and form a beautiful still-life.
The Bi-Disc is mostly a round, carved and polished disc with a hole in the middle. The form dates back from the Neolithic period and was scarcely decorated. Later pieces were sometimes decorated with patterns, animals or characters. They were used as a status or religious symbol and researchers guess their meaning had to do with the sun or the afterlife. Jade was thought to preserve a body, so a jade bi-disc was also used in funeral practises although only for rich and important people.
In China, jade remains a very popular material for objects due to its hardness, color variety and beauty after polishing. A jade bi-disc was also considered a connection between the earth and the sky and therefore a power and status symbol of the ruling class.
