The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery of the City University of Hong Kong presented an exhibition titled "The Grand Gathering of the Century: Zodiac Heads from the Yuanmingyuan and Important Treasures" on Tuesday in Hong Kong.  

The exhibition spotlights a set of highly valued national treasures, including four original zodiac heads %26mdash; tiger, pig, ox, and monkey %26mdash; of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) from Yuanmingyuan, or the Old Summer Palace. The 12 bronze zodiac heads of the Haiyantang, the largest European-style garden in Yuanmingyuan, could spout water at certain times of the day.  

In addition to displaying four bronze zodiac heads, the exhibition hall also uses augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and artificial intelligence (AI) to allow visitors to experience the past and present lives and historical changes of the world's cultural heritage in a dynamic way.  

It is reported that the exhibition will be open to the public free of charge from July 4 until Aug. 31. Visitors can register through the website of the Indra and Harry Banga Gallery to make an appointment.
