SAN FRANCISCO, April 19 (Xinhua) -- A major new exhibition of Chinese cultural relics from China's Bronze Age opened in San Francisco on Friday.

The exhibition, titled "Phoenix Kingdoms: The Last Splendor of China's Bronze Age", showcases more than 260 works from ancient Chinese Chu and Zeng kingdoms in the Zhou Dynasty.

The exhibition brings to life the distinguished Bronze Age cultures that flourished 3,000 years ago along the Yangzi River, a cradle of Chinese civilization.

This is the largest exhibition of cultural property China has ever organized in the United States in recent years. Many of the artifacts, including bronze ware, lacquer ware and jade ware, have never been exhibited outside China before.

The exhibition, running from April 19 to July 22, is organized by the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco and the Hubei Provincial Museum.

Located in the heart of San Francisco, the museum is home to one of the world's finest collections of Asian art, with more than 20,000 artworks ranging from ancient jades and ceramics to contemporary video installations.
