Default Mettallic: Bronze

These pictures are of Bronze objects used during the Qin Dynasty in China somewhere between 700-250BC. They are objects (tea pot, wine vessels and erotica) that were primarily used in the castles and homes of the reigning caste. Because of it's relative ease in casting and molding vs iron it tended to be the metal of choice here even tho the iron age was already dominant. Photos taken at the recent Terra Cotta Warriors display in NYC.
