Bi Disk 20 cm doorsnede 


Ontdek hier deze bi disk van 20 cm doorsnede bij Luxury By Nature.  

Het gebruik van Bi Schijven of de Bi disks bestaat al vele eeuwen. In China werden ze gemaakt van graniet, marmer, jade of brons. Het materiaal is afhankelijk van periode en hoe belangrijk iemand was. Jade was voor de adel en de grote veldheren.

De bi disk schijven werden gebruikt bij speciale gelegenheden en staan symbool voor oneindigheid. Maar ook de verliezer van een veldslag overhandigde een dergelijke schijf aan de winnaar om de nieuwe meester te erkennen.

Vaak werden deze schijven ook meegegeven in het graf.
Dit exemplaar is aan beide zijde gepolijst. 

Afmetingen bi disk, incl. voet: ca.26 cm hoog x 20 cm breed 
Afmetingen bi disk: 20 cm doorsnede

bi is a flat jade disc with a circular hole in the centre. Neolithic bi are undecorated, while those of later periods of China, like the Zhou dynasty, bear increasingly ornate surface carving (particularly in a hexagonal pattern) whose motifs represented deities associated with the sky (four directions) as well as standing for qualities and powers the wearer wanted to invoke or embody.
As laboriously crafted objects, they testify to the concentration of power and resources in the hands of a small elite.

Later traditions associate the bi with heaven, and the cong with the earth. Bi disks are consistently found with heaven and earth-like imagery, suggesting that the disk's circular shape also bears symbolic significance as this description explains:
It is found that these objects testify to early stages of development of cosmological concepts that remained important in Chinese culture during the Warring States and Han periods: the notion of a covering sky (gaitian) that revolves around a central axis, the cycle of the Ten Suns, and the use of an early form of the carpenter's square. These objects were handled by shamans who were the religious leaders of Liangzhu society and the transmitters of cosmological knowledge.

The original function and significance of the bi are unknown, as the Neolithic cultures have left no written history. From these earliest times they were buried with the dead, as a sky symbol, accompanying the dead into the after world or "sky", with the cong which connected the body with the earth. They were placed ceremonially on the body in the grave of persons of high social status. Bi are sometimes found near the stomach and chest in neolithic burials.

Jade, like bi disks, has been used throughout Chinese history to indicate an individual of moral quality, and has also served as an important symbol of rank. They were used in worship and ceremony – as ceremonial items they symbolised the ranks of emperor, king, duke, marquis, viscount, and baron with four different kweis and two different bi disks.

In war during the Zhou dynasty period (c. 1046–256 BCE), bi disks belonging to the leaders of the defeated forces were handed over to the victor as a sign of submission.
