Pic­tured is a mar­ble statue on dis­play as part of the on­go­ing spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion of cul­tural relics un­earthed in Pom­peii at Chi­nese Em­peror Qin­shi­huang’s Mau­soleum Mu­seum in Xi’an, cap­i­tal of North­west China’s Shaanxi Prov­ince, on Fri­day. More than 100 works of art from four pres­ti­gious in­sti­tutes in­clud­ing the Ital­ian Naples Na­tional Archaeological Mu­seum and Mu­seum of Ro­man Civ­i­liza­tion, present a look into the once pros­per­ous Ital­ian city of Pom­peii be­fore Mount Ve­su­vius erupted in 79 AD, killing many in the city.
