Masterpiece

Three feet of the Ding-tripot take the shape of a bird's beak,which was rather popular in the Longshan Culture and is interpreted as a symbol of a bird totem by the Dongyi (East Yi) people.

History of the Object
The Longshan culture ( 龙山文化) was a late Neolithic culture in China, centered on the central and lower Yellow River and dated from about 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The Longshan culture is named after the town of Longshan in the east of the area under the administration of the city of Jinan, Shandong Province, where the first archaeological find (in 1928) and excavation (in 1930 and 1931) of this culture took place at the Chengziya Archaeological Site. Dongyi was a collective term for people in Eastern China.
