Chinese Han Dynasty Stone Scabbard Slide, ex-Piscopo
China, probably Han Dynasty, ca. 206 BCE to 220 CE. This is a carved stone scabbard slide in the hydra style. The hydra style (also known as the hydra class) is a relief carving of a sinuous animal with the body in a curved form and incised or sculpted lines that suggest musculature. On this example, the face is clear in the lower left corner. The stone is creamy whites, browns, and yellows. This is the simpler form of the scabbard slide, consisting of just an enclosed aperture; Trousdale (1975) classifies this shape as Form II, Profile Type A(2). Form II is the rare form of scabbard slides in China, and most of the excavated examples were found in the northwest of the country. This piece does not appear to have been used overly much and may have just been for ceremony. Size: 2.15" L x 1.8" W x 0.85" H (5.5 cm x 4.6 cm x 2.2 cm)The scabbard slide was invented in the steppes of the southern Ural Mountains 2500 years ago, developed the manage the long iron equestrian sword. In China, nearly all of these objects are made from "jade" in the widest sense; elsewhere, there are also examples in bronze, lacquered wood, gold, and ivory. The purpose of these objects was forgotten until the 20th century, when some were scientifically excavated from undisturbed archaeological contexts. Now we know that the scabbard slide was attached, using silk thread or a thin strip of metal, to a flat or ribbed part of the scabbard, facing away from the body and generally at the balance point. A belt, usually of leather, would go through the slide. Trousdale (1975) suggests that the scabbard slide was the sole device used for suspending a sword in China for six hundred years. The swords that are buried with these jade ornaments are ceremonial or presentation swords and belong to noblemen -- in the Han Dynasty, for example, swords were worn by the Emperor and his officials in ceremonial or official dress.c.f.

20th C. Rare Nepalese Festival Mask - Hemp
Central Asia, Nepal, 20th century CE. Made from hemp, this is a fascinating festival mask with a pale green visage, heavy eyebrows, and wide, open, red-rimmed eyes. The sides are pierced for suspension. The Himalayan masking tradition is not as well known as those from Africa or Southeastern Asia, and today some of the original information has been lost due to fading oral traditions. Masks like this one relate to indigenous, animist traditions that developed in the harsh, wild environment of the Himalayas, and so they are often representations of local spirits. They were made to be worn in masquerades, glimpsed through light from lamps burning butter as oil. On the back of this example, you can see the woven pattern of the hemp.

The duckie's head and red crest feathers form the jar's handle, and his curled red tailfeathers appear in high relief at the opposite end.

In addition, duck effigies were associated with fertility and rebirth.
