Why this is a
Masterpiece

In ancient China, especially in the central plains area, almost all of the wine vessels are round or square-shaped. However, the nomad (equestrian) minorities and the people with camels as their companions, had the same kind of flat, or oblate-shaped wine containers. It is the material evidence of the exchange between the West and the East by the ancient Silk Road.

History of the Object
Unearthed at the Fancui tomb, Anyang, Henan in 1971.
