Among the thousands of objects at the Jade Museum are human figures.
Let’s look at some of them, in more or less the order in which they were encountered.
Where did these eyes come from?
Inquiring anthropologists want to know.
Sometimes, women are described as “statuesque”.
Some of these figures are mysterious.
I have seen the next expression before.
But darned if I can remember where.
From the safety of their display case, group of women watch the museumgoers.
A well-decorated woman sits…
Next, two figures appear to be in conversation.
Is the hand to the forehead a universal gesture?
Perhaps he was impressed by this warrior with his trophy?
In a more domestic vein, there was a couple, coupling.
First comes love, then comes…
And on unto the next generation.
