After 17 years of effort, archeologists in Sichuan Province said Monday they have restored a "dragon bed" believed to be used by an ancient king 2,500 years ago. The bed, 2.55 meters long, 1.3 meters wide and 1.8 meters tall, is the oldest and the best-preserved lacquered bed ever unearthed in China. The bed was unearthed in 2000 in a tomb complex discovered in Chengdu. (Xinhua/Liu Kun)
