Similar to Ofek, Naama Meirovitz, an archaeologist working in the museum, expressed her interest in the East Asian country.

"After seeing these pictures, one will be given an impulse to visit China," said the middle-aged woman who has not yet been to China, adding that "China is very intriguing and it is very interesting to see what the future holds for China."

Citing China's conspicuous achievement over the past six decades, Meirovitz said in a mild voice that "It must be very proud to be a Chinese."

As an example to demonstrate China's amazing accomplishment, she told Xinhua a story.

"I want to buy a gift for a Chinese girl who is now working voluntarily in the museum for the exhibition, but it turns out that in the gift shop, I can hardly find one which is not made in China," she said.

Reuven, a viewer with a notebook in his hand and seeming to be taking notes of pictures he enjoyed, echoed that "I am really impressed by the growth of China and find it amazing that the pictures showcase the great advancement of China."

"I am especially awed by the folk art of paper-cutting and Chinese calligraphy," added the artist.

Gili Tor, a third-year student at Reidmon College in Tel Aviv, told Xinhua that though he has never been to China, "I am fascinated by the Chinese culture and has always been interested in the country and its people."

"From the pictures, I can tell the Chinese people are happy and live a peaceful life," said the young man with a smile on his face, adding that the picture exhibition did give him a close look at China.
