"Jade is inextricably at the core of Chinese civilization and played an essential role in its self definition as one of its constituent, founding elements. Techniques of carving, the functions of the objects and even the values related to jade were established during the period of formation of Chinese culture, spanning the late Neolithic period to the age of the early empires. That is exactly the period to which the jades presented in this catalogue belong: from the 4th millennium BC to the 4th century AD, fromt he Neolithic period to the Han (206 BC-220 AD) and Western Jim (265-317 AD) dynasties."
