Img.021 (from Artefacts (#B2)

Img.021: Here is the drawing that best reproduces the almost actual appearance of the "Zhang Heng Seismograph" - except that it still shows the wrong slope of the dragons' mouths, as well as the wrong shape of the upper surface (lid). This surface, or rather the lid of the device, was in fact an almost perfect hemisphere (similar to the lid of the device in Img.020 (#B1), and NOT like the rim or "neck" of the pot shown above.
