Why this is a
Masterpiece

With elaborate design, elegant shape, and clear inscriptions, it is not only a fancy artefact, but also an important clue in understanding the etiquette in the Western Zhou Dynasty, and the friendly exchanges between Ying Kingdom and Xing Kingdom. It also offers evidence for the existence of the two kingdoms depicted in the historical documents. Some experts regard the inscription inside this artefact as an early diplomatic history.

History of the Object
Unearthed at the tomb of Ying Kingdom in 1987.
