A bronze figure at the famed Sanxingdui Ruins site was successfully matched with another animal bronzeware with the help of a three-dimensional (3D) model, the Sichuan Provincial Cultural Relics and Archeology Research Institute confirmed Monday.

The two bronzeware parts are from different sacrificial pits.

The combination of the two parts also indicates that the two pits were formed at the same time.

Originally discovered in the late 1920s, the Sanxingdui Ruins have been dubbed as one of the world's greatest archaeological findings of the 20th century.

Located in the city of Guanghan, the ruins covering an area of 12 square km are believed to be the remnants of the Shu Kingdom, dating back some 4,500 to 3,000 years.

So far, more than 50,000 items of bronzeware, jade, goldware, pottery, and ivory artifacts have been unearthed at the site.
