Description: Said to have been found at Ch'ang-sha in central China. (As this is 600 miles from Anyang and outside the Shang domain, it may support the suggestion that bronze working flourished in central China earlier than it did in the north.) A bird, emblem of air and spirit, surmounts upward pointing t'ao-t'ieh (taotie) masks, the emblem of the earth. -- h: 11" (Musee Guimet, Paris).
