A two-day preview of bronze statues of 12 Chinese zodiac animals got underway at the Great World in Shanghai on Sept 11, 2017. This set was made of fine copper during the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and the early Republic of China. Unlike the 12 bronze zodiac animal sculptures of the Old Summer Palace in Beijing, each of the statues is made of animal head, human body and pedestal, which makes them rare pieces of work. The exhibition will officially open to the public on Sept 17. [Photo/Chinanews.com]
