This is a Neolithic Chinese Hongshan bear dragon black jade artifact, it is a key stone piece with research concerning; the traditions of the later Sarmatians, the Northern and Eastern Gemanic tribes, the Northern Celts, and the Han Chinese. All the art on this artifact is all from the Late Neolithic. It shows that the spoon compass was in fact known to at least some people of Northetn China during the Late Neolithic Period. It is in fact a utility piece as it was used a female fertility stimulator, it is much like the later bronze female stimulators of the Eastern Roman Empire (titled as "Roman Female Stimulators"), examples of these can be seen with the Roman Amazon Permanent Collection on this website. The representational bear dragon is one of if not the rarest of the Hongshan jades, although there must be more, after viewing countless Hongshan jades I have only seen three including this example, these are with the kingarthurbanner.com collection, all three bear dragons have fertility themes.
