413 Pendant in the Shape of Three Archers
Openwork design of light greenish gray jade, representing three acrobats in long, checkered coats. One of the men supports the other two on his head and raised hands. Both the front and back of their coats are marked with plain and crosshatched fields; the borders are striated. Their hair falls in tresses over the shoulders at the back. The arms of the upper two men are separated from their chests merely by drill-holes. Late Eastern Chou.
