Chinese Culture Minister Sun Jiazheng (L, front) and experts look at the Zilong Ding,a huge round bronze ding, or three-legged bowl, dating back more than 3,000 years, during the ceremony marking its return to China in Beijing, capital of China, on Dec. 9, 2006. The vessel, with the inscription "Zilong", is the largest of its kind from the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 B.C.) ever discovered. It is believed the vessel was unearthed in Huixian County in central China's Henan Province in the 1920s and then lost to Japan in the 1940s.
