By Xinhua

Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, invited the wives of leaders attending the G20 summit to visit the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou City on Monday.

The visitors watched exhibitions of celadon art and Chinese calligraphy and paintings. Peng invited the guests to write the Chinese character "he" together. The character carries the meanings of "peace" and "harmony", she said.

They took a group photo in front of a traditional Chinese painting featuring the scenic West Lake.

When enjoying a Chinese silk clothes exhibition, Peng explained that Hangzhou has a reputation of being a "capital of silk" and its silk products were transported overseas through the ancient Silk Road.
