A detailed study of jades excavated from the tomb of the famous Fu Hao, Lady Fu. Fu Hao was a heroine of ancient China, being the wife of a pre-eminent Shang king, Wu Ding, and herself famous as a politician, military leader and shaman. The sheer number of jades found in her tomb at Anyang reflect her pre-eminence. The majority of the jades are small and are here enlarged in reproduction to show full and intricate detail. Many shown in numerous views. All text in Chinese.
