gaint bronze “tree” from ancient Sanxingdui culture. Photo from the Sanxingdui museum.
I found out about the Sanxingdui from the book Oracle Bones, by Peter Hessler. which is a very good read imo.
Check out the website (click through image) where I got the image from or just google for more… all the images of the bronzes are weird intriguing… and beautiful.
