The Jade Cabbage Is A Treasured Must-See Artifact In Taiwan, Perfectly Depicting The Green Leaves And White Stalks Of A Bok Choy

The stone from which the vegetable was carved had contained many cracks and flaws. So, the fact that the anonymous artist was able to work with the stone and produce such a gorgeous, complex object is highly impressive.

The online gift shop at the museum sells glass replicas of the cabbage that visitors can purchase as keepsakes. Some of them cost hundreds of dollars.

Other cabbage-related souvenirs include magnets, rulers, bottle stoppers, wind chimes, and fried egg-shapers. The museum’s restaurant even offers a dish that resembles the cabbage, although the insects are replaced with tiny shrimp.
