Jinwen (Chinese characters inscribed on ancient bronze ware )

Earliest known bronze vessel inscriptions were made during the Western Zhou Dynasty (1100-256 B.C.)

The longest text is the Maogongding  which contains 497 characters.

Compared to oracle bone inscriptions, Jinwen appears more organized and is simpler and less pictographic.
