      The Chinese practiced a polytheistic religion that is composed of multiple gods that controlled different aspects of the surrounding world. Serving bowls were often stemmed, and pouring vessels, such as the gu, had long spouts. The character indicates that the vessel had a ceramic origin. There was a three-legged li for cooking, and upon it could be fitted a bronze zeng, a bowl with a pierced bottom to function as a steamer—together called a yan. However, archaeologists have discovered other Bronze Age civilizations around the region of China such as the Sanxingdui Civilization — BC.

      Seeing this wonderful ox from the Spring and Autumn period, one thinks of the victim ox that King Hui of Liang felt sorry for in the book of Mengzi. As in many other societies, they sacrificed animals to royal ancestors and to various nature gods,9 using sacrifices to ask the ancestors or gods for help and to feed the ancestors or gods to keep them strong. His name was Jie. The Shang Dynasty only got defeated in one war. This simplicity of the gu has been handed down for centuries. The character for hu is a picture of the vessel.

      How did these cultures differ? Scholars do not fully agree on the dates and details of the earliest Chinese dynasties, but most accept that the Shang Dynasty is the first one to have left behind written records and solid archaeological evidence of its existence. Describe the different social orders that developed during the first three dynasties. In addition to uncovering the remains of several Shang cities, archaeologists have found huge tombs of many Shang kings and their families. The earliest bronzes of the Shang were primitive, but a course of development is evident that culminates in elegant ceremonial objects as well as a substantial range of cooking and serving dishes and various utensils and ornaments.
