Description: Square Bronze Mirror with four gilt Shan (T) shapes, Warring States period (480-221 BC) Mirrors with 3-4-5 Shan shapes are the main motif of the Warring States period. It is not clear, however, what the Shan (T) shape signifies. One suggestion is it is an early form of the T-shape found on TLV mirrors and the liubo gaming board, but to date there is no proof of this. The Shan shape, dragons, bears, tigers, deer are represented in relief against a finely patterned ground. Such fine patterning was cast on bronzes by inlaying separately press-molded panels onto the mold surface.
