Why this is a
Masterpiece

Jin is a table for wine vessels. Its body has several layers of cloud-shaped relief decorations supported by bronze stalks of various sizes, with twelve dragon-shaped animals climbing around and another twelve staying at the bottom as legs of the Jin. Of all the bronze objects were cast by using the lost wax casting technique unearthed in China, this one is the earliest. The exquisite and complex craftsmanship of this Jin reached an amazingly high level.

History of the Object
It was owned by the son of King Chu Zhuangwang of the Chu Kingdom. Unearthed in 1978 in Xichuan, Henan.
