Pre-dynastic Zhou Culture
Li - Pottery Cooking Vessel
陶鬲   烹饪器

Another view of the pottery li from the previous page. It has hollow legs that allow the liquids in the pot to have more surface area exposed to the fire and thus heat more quickly. It was made during the pre-dynastic Zhou period (1238 - 1140 BC). The li was discovered at a site in Zhengjiapo, Wugong County.
