Spectacular examples have been found at all the major archaeological sites. The main types of cong have a square outer section around a circular inner part, and a circular hole, though jades of a bracelet shape also display some of the characteristics of cong. The principal decoration on cong of the Liangzhu period was the face pattern, which may refer to spirits or deities. On the square-sectioned pieces, like this example, the face pattern is placed across the corners, whereas on the bracelet form it appears in square panels.
These faces are derived from a combination of a man-like figure and a mysterious beast. All the measurements are the best approximation only. Please note that there might be some variation on the colour due to different computer monitors used.
