Your translation of the King's Japanese name as 'Jade General' is surprising. Most Shogi documentation renders the name as Jewelled General, suggesting a variety of different jewels. Until I read this item Jade seemed like a good adjective for one of the four simplest extra Generals in extrapolating to 3 dimensions (along with Azure, Brass, and Steel). Does this mean that I have to rethink my nomenclature? On the positive side, it is always good to see pieces represented in a way that is easy to recognise.
