China's bronze art flourished in the Shang and Zhou (c.16th century - 256 BC) dynasties, a period spanning most of China's slavery society and the start of its feudal society. In this period, bronze forging became the most important handicraft manufacturing sector, when large numbers of imposing bronze wares were produced to cater to the need of aristocrats and slave owners for daily and ritual uses.
A guideline has been released by Chinese authorities to evaluate the job titles for professionals in fields related to cultural relics.
