A collection of jade works ranging from a large Buddha statue to wood paintings inlaid with the gemstone and antique dragon-shape jade is on display at an exhibition in Hanoi.

Collecting jade was a Hanoi tradition among royals and mandarins.
 
It was not just a sign of wealth but jade was also considered to balance feng shui and protects the owner from bad luck.

The exhibition is on at 93 Dinh Tien Hoang street from January 18 to February 18.
