Shang Double-Ram Zun

This container, presumably for wine, is flanked by the heads and forequarters of two rams. The rams are very lifelike and this realistic style of decoration suggests it might have been made in Hunan province. Shang Dynasty, 13th to 12th century BCE. From modern-day China. (The British Museum, London).
