Of typical form and attached with a carved piece of lacquered wood protecting the base of the skull and eyes inlaid with spinach green jade, the protrusion above the beak carved with a scene of a phoenix and various songbirds amidst pine trees and large peonies, both sides of the skull inlaid with silver wire a scene of birds, rockery and florals, all below a continuous poem dated to the Qianlong reign:

All the colours of the garden faded by comparison

She drew the attention of all things

The water was not deep enough for her shadow

Her fragrance lingered wherever she went

All the small creatures gazed at her under the moonlight

Even the butterflies were taken by her beauty

Men could not enhance her beauty by mere poetry

Her budding charms were visible

Through the sheerness of her gown

Her fragrance was worthy only for an emperor

The moon goddess paled by comparison

The emotions she aroused were indescribable
