LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition of digital copies of China's Palace Museum artifacts held here Saturday has offered U.S. audience an opportunity to feast on Chinese culture.

Over 30 copies of the Palace Museum artifacts were on display for American audience at the Beverly Hills City Hall, including calligraphy and paintings back to Sui, Song and Ming dynasties.

The audience could, by using a smart phone APP called Artivive, view 3D animation of the artifacts and hear their stories in both Chinese and English languages, presented by AR technology.

Wang Jin, cultural consul of the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles, said the artifacts in the Palace Museum are not only treasures of the Chinese nation, but also cultural heritage of the whole world.

She voiced her hope that the audience would appreciate the beauty of the Palace Museum and the Chinese culture through the exhibition.

"I have been to China many times, and I am a fan of the Palace Museum," said Jesse Weiner, who works at a local law firm.

He said he was very excited to see the digital copies of works of the Palace Museum, and expected to see more exhibitions about the Chinese culture in the United States.
