Lot essay
Compare to two elaborately carved jade anthropomorphic masks, both attributed to the Shijiahe Culture, in the collections of Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and Art Institute of Chicago; their line drawings illustrated in Teng Shu-p’ing, Collectors’ Exhibition of Archaic Chinese Jades, National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1999, p.35, pl. 30:1, 2, where the author speculates they functioned as handles of some sort. Refer also to two jade masks in the National Palace Museum Collection, both dating to the late Shijiahe Culture (acquisition no. gouyu 820 and 621), illustrated in Art in Quest of Heaven and Truth- Chinese Jades through the Ages, Taipei, 2012, pl.s 5-4-1 and 5-4-2.
