The motif of human activities was especially prevalent during the Spring and Autumn Period (770 -476 BC) to the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). It vividly reflects the ritual life scenes of ancient aristocrats, including agriculture and sericulture, archery, feasts, dances, hunting, and warfare.
