Recommand
Going by the former name "Tzu-ho-pei tsu-ting ting", this is the heaviest and largest ting in the collection of the National Palace Museum. It measures 85.5 centimeters high, has a rim diameter of 59.4 cm, and weighs 94.65 kilograms. The grand and majestic shape of the vessel is decorated with animal-mask patterns in relief for an even grander effect. The initial character of the inscription, "P'eng", is the symbol of the clan of the person who made this vessel for the sacrifices in honor of his grandfather "Ting" (known by his sacrificial name).
