Chinese Ding Culture and Qianlong Yujiu

The Origin of Ding

The legend of the founding of China&rsquos first dynasty demonstrates the importance of ding (bronze vessel) to the ancient Chinese. There is a symbolic design used in Chinese sacrificial bronzes vessels. After King Yu of the Xia Dynasty brought the primordial floods under control he divided his land into nine provinces which were Jizhou Yanzhou Qingzhou Xuzhou Yangzhou Jingzhou Yuzhou Liangzhou Yongzhou and had nine sacrificial dings cast to represent them. The dings were cast large quantities of products and animals that were elegant in form finely decorated. The “nine ding” also called the “Auspicious Bronzes of the State”

The Symbol of Ding

Rulers used bronze cauldrons,cups,drinking vessles and other containers to present offerings of food and wine to royal ancestors and deities. Possession of Ding thus became a symbol for the holding of power, prestige and wealth. In this way,they reaffirmed their hereditary rights to power and attempted to persuade the ancestors to influence events favorably. Until the Spring and Autumn period, Ding had categorized into five main types, based on quantity: nine ding, seven ding, five ding, three ding, one ding. There were strict rules about how many an individual could have. Kings were allowed as many as nine, princes as seven, ministers as five and officials as three or one.
