A Jade pendant in the form of the Hehe twins

A Jade pendant in the form of the Hehe twins, one holding a basket and the other a lotus bloom.

The Hehe twins represent harmony and unity and are thought to be a later manifestation of the Tang dynasty (618-906) monks Hanshan and Shide who ordain over happy marriages.
