This brown fish is, um a bird !

Picked up among the riff-raff of a flea market in China it is a tantalising piece of jade. My first impression was that it resembled a fish lying on its belly. I can even see fins and the scales.
But turn the fish upside down and hey presto it becomes a bird !

What looked like fins are now the feet. Just love these trick pieces :))
|Modern Art ?|
Is this neolithic art, mordern art or forgers art. Well interpretation may well be in the Eyes of the Beholder :)) Meanwhile this inexpensive piece has given me much thoughts to ponder.
