An art exhibition themed on the bird Nipponia Nippon is being held in Shanghai as part of efforts to promote the harmony between human and nature as well as communication between China, Japan and South Korea.

Nipponia Nippon, or Zhuhuan in Chinese, is known as an auspicious bird in oriental culture. In 1981, only seven wild Nipponia Nippon were found in Hanzhong of Shaanxi province which unveiled the protection and breeding of the bird. China then sent some birds to Japan and South Korea in the following years, an act which gifted the bird its nickname "friendship ambassador".
