Ancient Chinese Bronze Culture, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF KOREA, 2021.9.16

    'The National Museum of Korea' collaborated with the Shanghai Museum, the representative museum of ancient Chinese bronzeware, to host a special exhibition on ancient Chinese bronzes. In 1928, a large-scale excavation of bronzes dating back some 3,300 years was conducted at the Yinxu archaeological site. It was confirmed that Chinese bronzes began to be produced in earnest from around the 21st century BC during the Shang Dynasty, with a clear purpose of worshiping gods at that time. We have set up three tracks representing ages when people worshiped gods, focused on humanity, and paid attention to both. While movement between the three tracks is possible, we have created switches at intervals to make the act more symbolic.
