    The shape and decoration of the whole vessel show the style of the early Yin Ruins. In terms of decorative patterns, the belly decoration has two layers: the upper layer is narrow, with thunder patterns; The lower layer is animal face. The expression techniques of ornamentation are all thin line shallow relief, dense and regular, trying to fill the decorative surface with lines, belonging to the third style of Luo Yue. The highly embossed animal eyes and the slightly bulging nose all show the need for highlighting the main organs. By the middle of Yin Ruins, it had become fashionable to use the ridge of a high drum as the nose. In terms of shape, the height of the column of the body and the thickness of the body have obviously increased, and the shape has also changed from straight to round, including the tail curve and the bottom curve. The three feet are also balanced, symmetrical and standardized triangular pyramidal feet. The whole vessel has a thin wall, a slightly long flow, and a very short tail. The three legged slender style is similar to that of Xiaotun M188 R2019 Jue and Xiaotun M388
