Ming Dynasty
The compressed globular body cast with a hexagonal mid-section decorated with panels of auspicious beasts galloping over rockwork landscape divided by projecting flanges, the tall slender neck flanked by two lug handles incised with stylised taotie, masks above two high-relief lions playing with brocade balls opening their mouths as an additional hollow target for the arrows, the brocaded balls resting on the shoulder decorated with archaistic acanthus-leaf patterns, all raised on a hexagonal tiered foot supporting a waisted flaring section cast with archaistic designs. 45.6cm (18in) high, 8.1kg.

The present vase is ingeniously cast with four arrow holes in the form of lions and balls. The animals crisply cast on the body can be identified as lion, tiger, rabbit, deer, goat and qilin.

Compare with a bronze 'animal' arrow vase, Ming dynasty, in the Hunan Provincial Museum, with the similar composition of animals leaping between two tall mountains, illustrated in Exhibition of the Collections of Hunan Provincial Museum, Beijing, 2012, pp.210-211.

壺六方,口方唇,兩側鑄貫耳,其上鏨刻饕餮紋,壺頸分鑄二隻獅子,獅子中穿成貫耳,肩部分六格,格內飾仿古饕餮紋,肩部兩側鑄鏤空開口繡球又成兩耳,以飄帶與雙獅相連,腹平緩,出六戟,每面飾高浮雕動物,動物皆作奔跨貌,兩側飾山巒,圈足束腰外撇,六邊出短扉棱,每面飾饕餮紋,足圈光素,上下兩層。

此壺動物刻畫生動精細,以獅口和繡球為耳孔頗見匠心。壺身所飾山巒動物,可辨者有獅、虎、麒麟、兔、鹿、羊。兩山夾動物裝飾之投壺,比較湖南省博物館藏一件明代動物紋投壺,見陳建明編,《復興的銅器藝術—湖南晚期銅器展》,北京,2013年,頁210-211。
