567 Cicada with Patches of Gold Foil
Biconvex piece of a highly polished, originally light bluish jade, now largely discolored and softened. The silhouette of the insect is slightly more compact and smooth than in the case of the two preceding specimens (Nos. 565, 566), and the wing tips are shortened. The corners of the wings are embellished with four triangular patches of gold foil. Probably Eastern Han.
