Frog Sitting On A Lily Pad, Hand Carved From Jade, Chinese.

 

Although many diverse cultures have carved jade, it is really the Chinese who have raised it to the level of an art. The master Chinese carvers grew more bold and ambitious with the discovery of jadeite jade several hundred years ago. The colours of jadeite jade were more diverse and vivid than the soapy, bland tones of nephrite jade. Using the material very wisely, they have created some of the most extraordinary gemstone carvings in the world.

Symbolism is key in Chinese culture. Everything has meaning.

In Chinese traditional culture, Frog represents the lunar yin, and the Frog spirit Ch'ing-Wa Sheng is associated with healing and good fortune in business. Most art symbols are taken directly from nature and are an essential aspect of Chinese art. Most pieces follow classical patterns and motifs.
