A replica of the Simuwu Ding, the largest ancient bronze unearthed in China, will be exhibited at the China Pavilion.

Presented by the Henan Province government, the replica was unveiled by Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng yesterday.

The 833-kilogram four-footed bronze represents the highest casting achievements of the Shang Dynasty (around 1600 BC-1100 BC). According to archeologists, the King of the Shang Dynasty had the Simuwu Rectangle Ding made to commemorate his mother.

It was unearthed in Anyang, Henan Province, in 1939, and is now at the National Museum of Chinese History.
