A Natural Jadeite Qilin

A walking Qilin carved from natural jadeite pale lavender and green apple, China, 19th century.
The qilin is a variety of chimera with a dragon's head, a scaly quadrupedal body, goat paws, and a bushy tail. This Chinese fabulous animal was the protector of Buddha and he had the ability to walk on the ground without trampling any insects or living things.
