Description:

Sanxingdui (Three Star Mound) is the name of an archaeological site and a major Bronze Age culture in modern Guanghan, Sichuan, China. Largely discovered in 1986, following a preliminary finding in 1929, archaeologists excavated remarkable artifacts that radiocarbon dating placed in the 12th–11th centuries BC. The type site for the Sanxingdui culture that produced these artifacts, archeologists have identified the locale with the ancient kingdom of Shu. The artifacts are displayed in the Sanxingdui Museum located near the city of Guanghan.
Ancient chinese texts describe the first regent Can Cong of the Shu-kingdom with great detail.
Where Can Cong came from, no one knows. He appeared when the people of the region knew neither writing, nor rituals, nor higher culture. He ruled for several hundred years until about the time when Sanxingdui was abruptly abandoned. He had golden silkworms in his luggage, of which he gave one to each family. Can Cong taught silkworm breeding and everything related to silk. The golden silkworms had to be returned to Can Cong when normal silkworms came out of them. Can Cong had strikingly strange eyes, according to ancient texts. In the “Treatise on the Huayang State” (compiled around 300 A.D.), the eyes of the culture-bringer are described just as we can see them on three of the bronze masks excavated at Sanxingdui: protruding, cylindrical eyes that protrude horizontally from the face. Can Cong was widely known as Zong Mu Zhi Ren, “The Man with the Horizontally Protruding Eyes,” and was mentioned and described as such in several ancient Chinese writings.
