Detailed Description

Spectacular and rare Chinese jade group, representing the five horses of the kingdom, light green in color and carved in a single block. Often we see Chinese jade sculptures on the market, but rarely of this quality, size and representation.

Coming from Beijing, northern China, from an important private collection.

From the Chinese etymology, the figure of the horse embodies perseverance and success, in fact it is often seen this representation in managerial studies, as a sign of power and reserved for the powerful.

The representation of the horse in art therefore indicates a wish for success, a rapid and rapid ascent to the top.

Measurements: Length 70 cm x Height 48 cm / weight 35 kg
End of the Quing Dynasty, around 1900/1915

It was the Spaniards who, conquering Central America, discovered a green stone to which the Indians attributed the power to heal kidney disorders.
The name "Piedra de ijada" ("stone of the kidneys" - or "side stone" -), the French word that comes from it becomes "stone of the ejade" and then, by deformation, "jade".

This word appears for the first time in the "general dictionary" in 1667. The French scientist Alexis Damour chose the term "jadéite" in 1863 to characterize the green jades originating in Burma that, a century earlier, had begun to flood the Chinese market. Jadeite is generally brighter and more translucent than nephrite, and its color, often green, has helped to suggest that jade is a green stone, condemning the white jades of Turkestan to oblivion. Alexis Darmour proposed to reserve the word "Nephrite" to the Turkestan jade.

For the Chinese, jade was the most precious stone and entered the production of sacred instruments and signs of power. It was a symbol of authority, of sacredness, reserved for the most powerful and at the same time adorned with all the virtues (charity, rectitude, wisdom, courage and fairness).
The jade attributes all had a different language, rich in symbols, and referring to the social position of the one who wore them.
According to the position on the chessboard of power, the color of jade changes: the emperor's belt was of white jade, that of the princes of green jade and that of the blue jade prefects.

Emperor TS 'ien-Lung, in the eighteenth century, was, among other things, a great lover of Turkestan jade. According to the "Memorial of rituals", a canonical book of the celestial empire, jade was "like the subtle material of the rainbow, cement and fixed in the form of stones in the mountains and rivers".
