Great, interactive presentation that takes the user through the multiple steps of creating a bronze vessel. This process can be complicated to explain without visualization. Textbook descriptions alone are often insufficient for students without a background in art history or studio art. This presentation could be used in a unit on Shang and Zhou dynasty bronze vessels in a Chinese Civilization course, or in an introduction to Chinese Art course.
