In acient China, Ding was one of the standard vessels for food sacrifying. Four legged "square ding" is still seen today in many temples as a container for incense burning.

This brass vessel is a reproduction of the ancient Chinese bronze Ding from SanXingDui. It is carved with traditional Chinese zodiac symbols.

Chinese Zodiac: Legends and mythology are a big part of Chinese culture, especially in relation to the Chinese Zodiac. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and boar. It's an unusual combination of animals for sure, and their appearance on the Chinese Zodiac is the topic of countless legends and is deeply embedded in Chinese mythology. Along with birth year animals, the Chinese Zodiac also represents inner animals and secret animals. We're probably all aware of the 12 animals or signs depicted on the Chinese Zodiac. Based on our year of birth, we understand that we're born under the sign of the Dragon, or the tiger, or one of the 10 other signs. But the truth is it's the inner animals and the secret animals that actually tell the most about who we really are and what our futures hold.

Made from copper/brass with a fine patina finish.

100% Handcrafted.

SanXingDu is the name of an archaeological site in China, now believed to be the site of an ancient Chinese city. The previously unknown Bronze Age culture was re-discovered in 1987 when archaeologists excavated remarkable artifacts, that radiocarbon dating dated as being from the 12th-11th centuries BCE. Leaving behind nothing in the historical record, not even in myth, the unknown culture that produced these artifacts is now known as the Sanxingdui Culture. This ancient culture had remarkably advanced bronze casting technology which was acquired by adding lead to the usual combination of copper and tin creating a stronger substance that could create substantially larger and heavier objects.
