The opening ceremony for "Grand Banquet of Kings", an exhibition of cultural relics, was held in the Guizhou Provincial Museum on Jan 23.

A total of 217 exhibits are on display, focusing mainly on bronze wares dating back to the Shang (c.16th century-11th century BC), Zhou (c.11th century-771 BC), Qin (221-206 BC) and Han (206 BC-220) dynasties of Southwest China.

With the help of the Southwest Museum Union, exhibits from 10 museums throughout Southwest China have been gathered at the Guizhou museum. Among them, 81 are national first-grade exhibits, 55 are second-grade, and 40 are third-grade.

Based on major historical events of Shi Ji (Historical Records), the exhibition will provide a comprehensive display of unearthed relics in Southwest China, giving a glimpse into Southwest China's historical integration with the rest of the nation.

Professional speakers were selected to share some of the stories behind the cultural relics on display. This unique combination of presentations and exhibits will provide visitors with a more engaging experience.

"During the opening ceremony, I learned that there will be many worthwhile artifacts on display at the exhibition. We will have an opportunity to witness rare cultural relics and hear the stories behind them as well. I think we'll learn a lot about these artifacts," said a Guiyang local surnamed Wang.

The exhibition will run until May 3.
