We welcome you to Beijing and Mr. Su's studio. Mr. Su is good at writing Jinwen.
Jinwen is the name of an ancient Chinese character. The general name of the inscriptions on the bronze wares of Shang, Western Zhou, spring and Autumn period and Warring States period. There are four kinds of Jinwen, namely, Jinwen in Shang Dynasty (about 1300 BC ~ 1046 BC), Jinwen in Western Zhou Dynasty (about 1046 BC ~ 771 BC), Jinwen in Eastern Zhou Dynasty (770 BC ~ 222 BC) and Jinwen in Qin and Han Dynasty (221 BC ~ 219 BC).
Bronze inscriptions in Shang Dynasty
Even though there were bronzes before the Shang Dynasty, pan Geng moved to Yin (now the northwest of Anyang, Henan) after the beginning of Jin Wen. At the beginning of the week, there were only a few figures. By the beginning of the week, there were more than 1200 words. In the late Shang Dynasty, there were more and more bronzes with gold inscriptions, but the description was still very brief, and most of them were the names of the forgers or their ancestors. By the time of the fall of the Shang Dynasty, some articles appeared, but the longest one was still more than 40 words.
Bronze inscriptions in Western Zhou Dynasty
In the Zhou Dynasty, the golden culture gradually flourished, and the emperor's affairs, such as the southern patrol of King Zhao and xishuo of King Mu, were mostly recorded.
Bronze inscriptions in Eastern Zhou Dynasty
Since the king of Ping moved eastward, iron has been found gradually, and bronze music such as bells has become more and more, and they can also be cast on the outside of bronze. Therefore, the records of Jin Wen are not the same as they were at the beginning, but only for the affairs of princes and ministers, such as war achievements and scales. At this time, Jinwen is widely used, which can be called the heyday.
Bronze inscriptions in Qin and Han Dynasties
After the first emperor of Qin ruled the whole country, the imperial edict was written in the same text, and a monument was erected in four directions. All the words used were small seal script, and no longer engraved on the bell tripod, so the golden script gradually declined. Until the Han Dynasty, the folk cast inscriptions on iron, bronze, no longer used, Jin Wen is not seen in history.
