The Yunnan Provincial Museum houses an important collection of early bronzes (Warring States through Western Han period) that were excavated from royal burials at Shizhai Shan and other locations in the vicinity of Lake Dian. This part of Yunnan, whose people and language were not originally Han Chinese, had been ruled by an independent Dian kingdom from about 500 BC; bronzes from this period through middle Western Han (about 100 BC) are unique to the region, and share many characteristics with bronze artifacts of Southeast Asia. Their decoration, with predominant themes of animal combat and hunting, was also influenced by artistic styles of the Eurasian steppe.
