A giant stereoscopic sculpture displaying the full view of Yuan Ming Yuan Park was put on exhibition in Nanning International Conference and Exhibition Center in Nanning, capital city of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region from July 1 to July 16. The mini imperial garden, covering an area of 250 square kilometers, is 18 meters in length and 14 meters in width. In terms of scale, the actual park is 150 times the size of the miniature.

Yuan Ming Yuan Park, also known as the Old Summer Palace, was built during the Qing Dynasty and functioned as both an office compound and a residence of the emperor. Covering an area of 210 hectares, of which water areas accounted for 40 percent, the garden comprised 10 small gardens.
