Chinese bronze and silver artifacts were made for the very wealthy elite, and were associated with power. Wine vessels played an important role in the ritual banquets that took place in family temples or over ceremonial tombs. The Chinese believed in the afterlife and ancestral worship, and wanted their deceased relatives to have everything they need.
