western Han Pottery Models of well Railing Unearthed near Mount Mang

Lu Qingfeng;  
In 2011, during an archaeological excavation along the new national highway G310, the Luoyang Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology excavated a number of Han dynasty tombs near Mount Mang, north of the Han to Wei dynasty city site in Luoyang, Henan province. Ten special pottery models of well railing dated to the Western Han dynasty have been unearthed. Rectangular in plan, most of these models consist of railing, bar, roof, pulley and water containers; some have a water tank. Stamped decorations on the surface show scenes of labouring, dog butchering, horses, oxen and man with goat or camel. Others depict legendary bird, dragon, tiger, horse or god, in addition to geometric patterns such as lozenge or dot. These decorations were intended to pray for a peaceful, happy and plenty life. Rare in the Luoyang region and even in China, they show distinct regional style. Advanced moulding technique was applied to make these decorations. The pictures are made in intaglio, relief, bas-reliefs or relief on sunken ground.
