Eastern Zhou Dynasty fang hu vessel, 8th century BC. Freer and Sackler Galleries, Washington D.C.

A hu ( or ) is a type of pear-shaped ritual wine bronze vessel from ancient China. They would be placed in the grave of an ancestor as part of ritual banquet in order to ensure the good favor of that ancestor's spirit. During the Shang Dynasty one hu would typically be offered, decorated with relatively simple taotie designs.[1] During the Zhou Dynasty the style of the vessel changed, with taotie being replaced by "heavy, rounded relief figures on a plain ground". [2] During this period the vessels were also usually offered in pairs, and increased dramatically in size over their Shang predecessors. Two hu recovered from the Tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng were each 39 in (99 cm) high and weighed 529 lb (240 kg) apiece.[3] During the Warring States Period the shape of the vessel was again modified, taking on a more squared appearance.[3][4] This squared version of a hu is referred to as a fāng hú . [5] Another variation was the yu, which added a handle.[5]
