Chien Basin with Copper-inlaid Battle Scenes


Two almost identical items were recovered. Each of this pair of basins has a wide mouth, flat bottom, and four animal-head handles with movable rings. These vessels are decorated with diagonal cloud-and-thunder patterns along the mouth and around the belly. They are most famous for the inlaid battle scenes, which not only show various battle scenes of ancient China, but also provide important materials for the study of the history of ancient weaponry with their depiction of the halberd, spears and two-pronged lances.
