西周青銅鼎
鼎是我國青銅文化的代表,鼎在古代被視為立國重器,是國家和權力的象徵。直到現在,中國人仍然有一種鼎崇拜的意識。“鼎”也被賦予了尊貴、“盛大”等引申意義。|此件西周時期鼎為直耳,半球腹,足為獸蹄形,矮短而莊重有力,鼎的口沿還裝飾有環帶狀的重環紋。整個造型渾厚凝重,飾紋簡潔古雅樸素,具有濃厚的生活氣息,是西周晚期的鼎由宗教轉向世俗生活的代表作品。|鼎內刻有9行8列銘文,內容為:唯王九月丁亥,王客(格)於般宮,丼白內右(邢伯入佑)利,立中廷,北鄉(向),王乎乍(呼作)命內史冊命利,曰:易女(錫汝)赤巿、(鑾)旂,用事,利(拜稽)首,對(揚)天子不(丕)皇休,用乍(作朕文)考白(漣伯尊)鼎,利(其)萬年子孫永寶用。|此鼎沉雄厚實,鑄工精湛,歷史悠久,保存完整,實為難得,為青銅收藏上上品。|來源:紐約佳士得,2009年3月18日拍賣,拍品215,Arthur M. Sackler 收藏。
