Neolithic Era
Pottery Li

A (lì) is a type of cauldron with three hollow legs used for cooking. The hollow legs allowed the heat to reach more of the surface of the liquid and thus was more efficient. It is 12.6 inches tall (32 cm) and the mouth is 5.12 inches across (13 cm). This Neolithic pottery li was a product of the Longshan culture and was found in Zijing, Shangzhou and dates to between 2100 BC and 2900 BC.
