Ritual wine vessels, anonymous, c. -1046 - c. -256

bronze (metal), h 37.5cm × d 18.5cm. More details

Around 1050 BC the Zhou defeated the Shang. Seeking to present themselves as worthy successors to the Shang, they adopted many of their predecessors’ customs. This included ceremonies with ritual bronze objects. The decoration of these wine vessels – alternating smooth zones and bands of motifs – still greatly resembles that of earlier Shang bronzes.
