Why this is a
Masterpiece

This lei vessel’s form and structure is grand and dignified; all four corners produce flanges (protruding rims), further adding to its dignity. The designs on the main body are in high relief, while dense thunder patterns can be found toward the bottom, distinguishing between primary and secondary motifs. Below the belly is a spiral horned animal mask design, carved swiftly and fiercely, producing great awe.

History of the Object
This animal mask motif is typical of the late Shang Dynasty.
