Shang Dynasty Bronze Wine Server Replica
19"W x 6"D x 16.5"H
This ritual wine server, referred to in Chinese as a "guang", is a bronze, piece-mold cast vessel complete with removable lid. The original version of this bronze replica dates back to the Shang Dynasty (1066 BC), also known as the Bronze Age of China. This unique work of art features various animals, domesticated and mythical, that are imperative to ancient Chinese culture. A bull head for the lid, protruding horned beast along the back ridge, a winged phoenix emerging from the belly, and a serpent-like creature completes the vessel's handle, this is truly a work of art that showcases ancient Chinese bronze artistry. Shang Dynasty bronze sculptures are, therefore, more than just elegant objects, but symbols of power, commanding respect. Finely applied aged patina, that is faithful to the original. A great work of art for any contemporary setting.
