An exhibition displaying more than 200 seals depicting efforts to combat  poverty and the COVID-19 epidemic kicked off at the China Millennium  Monument in Beijing on Monday.

For the section dealing with the  epidemic, seals depicting stories of Chinese medical workers providing  support to Wuhan, such as at the Leishenshan and Huoshenshan hospitals,  are on display.

These small seals vividly tell stories that  occurred during the epidemic. "Looking at these seals made me relive the  Chinese people's fight against the epidemic. I could feel the seal  engravers' deep respect for those who fought on the front lines. I was  deeply touched," Wu Meixin, a Beijing resident, said at the exhibition.

Walking  through the other sections, visitors can examine seals dedicated to the  country's fight against poverty. One seal depicts a Beijing textile  company's move to Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in  2016 to support the development of the local textile industry.

In  addition to traditional materials such as wood, stone or copper, some  seals also make use of new materials like graphite or fiberglass. 

Although  the paintings and calligraphy works on the seals are rather small, they  still are able to depict rich content and convey a positive message to  audiences.

The exhibition is set to run until October 24.
