(ECNS) -- Two more cultural relics from the sought-after Sanxingdui Ruins in Southwest China's Sichuan Province debuted at Yibin Museum on this year's International Museums Day, which fell on Wednesday.
The two relics were displayed in the"Blossom Blossoms - Bashu Bronze Civilization Special Exhibition", featuring Bashu culture.
One relic is a bronze mythical creature, which looks like a robotic dog. With its body decorated with cloud and thunder stripes, its four limbs are crouched on the ground and head held high. The overall appearance is robust and powerful.
The artifact was dug from the No.3 pit, with a length of 28.5 centimeters, height of 26.4 centimeters, and width of 23 centimeters.
A bronze relic shaped like a crawling dragon that functioned as a cover was also shown to the public for the first time.
At present, experts do not know the exact meaning of both artifacts.
Several digital services have been introduced as new ways to tour the museum, including AR glasses and intelligent robots. Through these new functions, visitors can gain easy access to more information.
Together with the cute bronze beast, more than 130 pieces (sets) of fine cultural relics from nearly 20 cultural institutions from Sichuan and Chongqing have been put on display, most of which are bronze, stone, gold, and jade ware.
The exhibition will last until Aug. 17.
