Although the exact function is not certain, the disc may have been intended to help the deceased's soul in its journey to heaven. Made from dark variegated green Jade with traces of brown color, a circular disc with the image of a fierced dragon and a large bird with elongated tail, with Chinese inscriptions between them. Very beautiful and attractive.

Traces of green patina with earthen encrustations.
