    £675.00 Members' price *


    A replica of a bronze vessel known as Owl-shaped Zun, based on an original antiquity from ancient China. This replica measures 18cm tall.

    The piece is a Zun - a bronze wine container used in ancient China. Its owl-like head has a sharp beak and both wings are decorated with dragon patterns and the chest with animal masks. The owl’s head is the lid of this vessel and the body rests on the tail and two claws. This is an outstanding piece among the late Shang bronzes (13th Century - 11th Century BC).

    The original is in the collection of the Shanghai Museum. This model made by Shanghai Museum Art Company is crafted using special techniques that represent the craftsmanship of the Shang Dynasty.
