Lovers Scratch Names Into Copper Urn In The Forbidden City
A Ming Dynasty copper urn at the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City, Beijing has been vandalized by having two names scratched into it. The artifact, which is located on the right side of the Imperial Garden’s south entrance on entry and is over 300 years old, now features the names 张涛 (Zhang Tao) and 刘雅 (Liu Ya) surrounded by a love heart on its surface. Although the palace can pass on suspects and CCTV footage to the police for prosecution purposes, the biggest penalty for the crime is currently just 200 RMB. One netizen said scum who damaged national cultural relics should be punished severely.
