My Opinion on the formation of Chime-Bells from the Tomb of Marquis Yi of the Zeng State
Abstract: Based on the research result of the formation of the Chime-bells from the Tomb of Marquis Yi of the Zeng State, the author sort out the ins and outs of each viewpoints born, and held a new idea that the number of Chime-bells for burial experienced the change from 48 to 64, and selected 64 bells on the purpose not clap up in a random way. Further more, the author had the opinion that the system of Liyue (system of rite, morality and music), which established in the Western Zhou Dynasty with layered hierarchies of order and being carried out strict, had broken down, but the assembled ritual bronzes still was indicative of the caste system clearly. From an instrument perspective, the 64 Chime-bells from the tomb of Marquis Yi of the Zeng State were not a suit of, which means that Yi could not used this number of bells to performance during his life; on the other hand, the writer had faith that is a suit of bells according to the attribute possessed by the bronze bells ritual for burial.
