The Eyes at Sanxingdui

Jamelia and Sanxingdui Sculpture

Some time ago I learned about an archaelogical site in China near a town called Sanxingdui which was discovered in the 1920s. Apparently the composition of the metals and some of metallurgical techniques used in some bronze and gold sculptures there linked them to civilizations further west in Egypt and Turkey, unexpected link given how old it was.
