Footnotes

  • 新石器時代 或龍山文化 黑褐色玉璋

    Compare with two archaic jade blades, zhang, Longshan Culture, in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Compendium of Collections in the Palace Museum: Jade 1 Neolithic Age, Beijing, 2011, pp.174-175, nos.164 and 167.

    黑褐色玉,光素無紋,打磨細膩,手感柔潤,璋首一面呈斜坡,口呈月牙形,闌外凸,柄略微內收,柄端不規則,近闌處穿孔,穿上大下小。

    璋為禮器,器型源自戈、鉞、錛等實用器。玉璋在中原各地區皆有所見,可知當時使用之廣泛。此件玉璋可與北京故宮所藏兩件龍山文化玉牙璋比較之,見《故宮博物院藏品大系玉器篇1》,北京,2011年,頁174及175,編號164及167。
