Why this is a
Masterpiece

With its pure white color, fine quality, and birdshape modelling, this Gui-tripot is a typical example of the Dawenkou Culture.

History of the Object
The Dawenkou culture is a name given by archaeologists to a group of Neolithic communities who lived primarily in Shandong. The culture existed from 4100 BC to 2600 BCE. The Dawenkou Site is located along the Wenhe River in Dawenkou Town of Tai'an City, Shandong Province. The Shandong Provincial Museum carried out an excavation in 1959. The Dawenkou Culture was named after the site in 1964. The site dates back to 3500-2500 BCE, with its burial ground being a relic of the paternal clan society.
