Animated version of the bronze ‘Zun wine vessel in the shape of an owl,’ 13th-12th century BCE, now in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
From its description of artsmia.org:
‘This owl-shaped zun is divided into two sections: the removable owl’s-head lid and the bird’s hollow body. Vessels shaped like animals constitute virtually the only bronze sculpture known from the Shang period…This owl is one of the oldest and most naturalistic of the few remaining owl-shaped zun. Its form exhibits the influence of the Shang capital, Anyang, in the North, but the style and casting technique of the vessel…indicate that it is related to the bronze tradition of the middle Yangzi region in southern China.’
