Catalogue Entry

The bronze ding replica in the Cultural Centre collection is divided into three components. Each section would've allowed cooking of different foods simultaneously. Bronze vessels were very popular in the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 B.C.). Bronzeware dating back to the Shang Dynasty is noted for its size and naive forms. Shang Dynasty bronze is referred to having a "feroscious beauty",  due to their volume and compositions that were often repetitive and unhinged.


文化中心館藏的銅鬲複製品分為三個部分。每個部分都可以同時烹飪不同的食物。青銅鬲在商代(公元前 1600-1046 年)非常流行,而它亦以其尺寸和樸素的設計而著稱。由於商代青銅器的體積和成分經常重疊和被混淆,因此它們被認為具有「極限美」。
