Huo is a cooking pot. This Huo Ding, buried with a shovel-shaped ladle, was found containing cooked cow bones. On the Huo Ding are three hoof-shape legs and two top handles. When it was unearthed, a pair of hooks was found hanging on the handles. These hooks are supposed to be hung to the sides when the Huo Ding needs to be moved around.
