Red Pottery Gui Tripod

 

Longshan Culture Period
Height: 39cm
Mouth diameter: 11.9cm

Made of red clay pottery, the gui tripod has a upward-stretching spout, a long and thin neck, and three big bag-shaped legs, with a twisted handle between the neck and one of the legs for carrying. The vigorously-shape tripod is like a firmly-standing rooster.

The gui tripod is one of the most unique articles of the Longshan Culture Period and this one is a masterpiece of pottery ware of that period.
