"Audiences can witness the evolution of bronze in ancient China, from the earlier objects of the Xia Dynasty that featured simple patterns to the peak of bronze art in the late period of the Shang Dynasty, when rituals and the social hierarchy system reached a new height," he adds.

At the opening of the exhibition, Shanghai Museum also announced the introduction of its first series of NFT (none-fungible tokens) artworks: a you (wine vessel) from the early Western Zhou period and a bronze square sheng that dates to the Warring States Period (475-221 BC).The sheng is known as China's first standardized unit of measurement.
