[Photo/Weibo.com]Pictures showing a naked model leaning on a white marble handrail and sitting on the head of a marble dragon at the Palace Museum, former home of Chinese imperial family, went viral and caused heated debate on the Internet last month. The photos were first posted on Chinas microblog site Sina Weibo by photographer Wang Dong on May 17.Shan Jixiang, director of the Palace Museum, first responded to the incident at a tourism safety press conference held at the Forbidden City.”Twenty sets of cameras recorded all the actions of the four young people who were involved in this nude photo shoot incident, from buying tickets to taking off the models clothes and taking photos,” Shan said, “The evidence has been given to the authorities to deal with.”He said the Palace Museum management has completed 75 percent of the work to install an all-seeing eye monitor system and has put cameras in 27 zones of the Palace Museum since March 2014. After the work is finished, 2,100 sets of cameras will cover every corner of the Forbidden City, and monitor it 24 hours a day.Shan also appealed to visitors, saying that the museum is “a sacred place,” and asked people to obey social morality and protect the cultural heritage site and its dignity.”We very much welcome artists from all over the world to make artistic creations. But the indecent photo shoots not only go against social morality, order and good customs, but also harm the relics and the dignity of the cultural heritage. This should be condemned by all society.”The Palace Museum has handed over evidence to the police for further investigation. Chinas public security law stipulates that those who molest others or purposefully appear naked in public may be subject to five to ten days in police custody. Whether the young people involved in this nude photo are subject to such a punishment will be decided by the public security system, the museum said.In previous reports, the photographer who took the photos, Wang Dong, whose online name is “WANIMAL,” insisted that the photo shoot was an act of artistic creation that did not affect any other visitors to the site.”I published my photographs on various professional platforms overseas,” Wang said. “Some people stole the photos and posted and spread them online and then said I offended them. I thought it was so ridiculous.”(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Huang Jin,Gao Yinan)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = enpeople; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 8908028;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingForbidden City starts checking IDsForbidden City responds to the naked model photosPalace Museum free for kids on MondayOld photos of Forbidden City exhibited for the first time in 66 yearsExclusive: Culture relics revived, Palace Museum to open 18 new exhibitions in celebration of the 90th anniversaryPrince William visits Forbidden City in BeijingWe RecommendChinese students learn Duanwu customs in Hefei, Anhui
