Three invaluable historical artifacts from Hunan Museum came alive on January 14 in National Treasure, a hit China Central Television (CCTV) program on cultural relics which blends documentary and variety show elements.

Famous celebrities, including Lei Jia, He Jiong, Huang Bo and Wang Jia, interpreted the history of the three cultural artifacts: a T-shaped painting on silk unearthed in the tomb of Lady Xinzhui, wife of Marquis Li Cang in the Western Han Dynasty (206BC-25AD), the magnificent bronze ritual wine vessel "Min" Fanglei from the Shang Dynasty (c.16 century-11th century BC) and a handled brown porcelain ewer etched with a poem produced at a Changsha Kiln during the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

The weekly TV program, which has been viral since its first airing on Dec. 3, 2017, consists of ten episodes to showcase a total of 27 finest treasures from nine Chinese museums.

Hunan Museum has a collection of 180,000 cultural relics.
