Mythical Mountains carved in Jade Pebbles

Some Mythical Mountains carved in Jade Pebbles as seen on the Hangzhou Antiquity market in May 2005

One of my favored Jade pieces are Mountain Scenes carved into Jade pebbles. Here some of them seen on the market and photographed with the available background and lightening. Their working is quite good and the surface is finely polished also in the recesses.
