Showcasing more than thirty ancient bronzes from the exceptional holdings of the Shanghai Museum, this generously illustrated book offers a compelling overview of the beauty of Chinese bronzes and the fascinating traditions surrounding them. These important objects, many of which have never before appeared in an English-language publication, date from the 18th to the 1st century B.C.E. and span numerous dynasties. Highlights of the exhibition include an early thin-wall cast three-legged food vessel (ding) from the Erlitou period, a set of nine bells (bianzhong) from the early Spring and Autumn period, and a beast-shaped wine vessel (he) from the early Warring States period.
