Lot Overview

鎮以玉製成,周身鈣化成雞骨白色,帶有深淺不一褐色沁及銅綠鏽斑。雕琢為豹形,豹眼圓睜,平吻,身蜷屈,臀部豐腴飽滿,後腿隱於身下,長尾收捲,作蟠伏狀,底部平坦。整體泛出古穆風采,刻劃逼真,刀工遒勁,充分體現漢代造形藝術之特色。

在高架傢俱傳入中國前,人們習慣席地跽坐,為避免起身坐落時折卷席角,席鎮應運而生。《楚辭》最早記錄古代席鎮的搭配使用:「白玉兮為鎮,疏石蘭兮為芳。」朱熹集注:「鎮,壓坐席者也。」完整席鎮為一套四枚,為避免牽羈衣物,鎮體的基本造形往往接近於扁圓半球形,且多數呈動物形,常見虎、豹、辟邪、羊、鹿、熊、龜、蛇等,有除邪惡、吉祥納福之含意,成為古代工藝美術中獨樹一幟的亮點。
