Nota del catálogo

Bronze vessels in the form of a Ding supported on high blade-like feet are based on Neolithic pottery vessel forms unearthed in Henan province. The same form cast in bronze first appeard in the early Shang period, with a deep rounded body set on short flat feet, compare Zhongguo meishu fenlei quanji. Zhongguo qingtongqi quanji, vol. I: Xia, Shang, Beijing, 1996, pls. 38 and 39. By the late Shang period, vessels of this type were more commonly cast with a more shallow bowl resting on high blade-like in the form of stylised dragons or birds with eyes cast in relief as several examples excavated from sites in and around Anyang in Henan province illustrate, see Zhongguo meishu fenlei quanji. Zhongguo qingtongqi quanji, vol. II: Shang, Beijing, 1996, pls. 53-57. On the development of this archaic  bronze vessel form, see Robert W. Bagley, Shang Ritual Bronzes in the Arthur M. Sackler Collections, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1987, pp. 448-449.
