This is another Standing Owl from the Shang Dynasty but with the following differences:
01.This Owl is of Nephrite,whilst the other is of pseudo Jade.
02. Around the Beak region is a set of drilled holes,very unusual.
03. This Owl has a pair of legs at bottom,whereas the other is a hollowed recess at bottom.
04. This Owl has a pair of holes at neck behind and the other has a hole drilled from top to bottom (possible with pseudo Jade,as is much softer).
Overall this is a more sophisticated and higher quality (because is of Nephrite) Standing Owl of the Shang Dynasty. Visit the Friends of Jade website for updates on Jade.
