Zheng Pendant/Chop
   

1992
Soapstone

This pendant was shaped from a square piece of stone and the character 正 (zheng) was carved in the front with the same chisel that I used to drill the hole in the top of the piece. The bottom of the pendant is actually a chop (signet-seal) which is carved with my Chinese name and two stylized bats (an auspicious symbol in Chinese art).
