The bronze human head has a round top, and long eyebrows, olive-shape eyes, straight nose, and a wide mouth. The neck is long and hollow. In the middle of the top is a long groove, and oblong hole on each side. This indicates there might be ornaments attached to the top. This bronze human head found in Jinsha is similar to the bronze human head in Sanxingdui site in shape and style, which reveal their interconnection on bronze casting and smelting style.
