Tripod Cauldron with Legs in Form of Horned Sheep

Large bronze cauldrons have been found in mountain regions, and this fact suggests that they may have been used in the area of summer pasture, perhaps to prepare communal meals.

The lower part of the legs is made up of the two joined front legs of the sheep.
