Return of bronze heads from France to China signifies how countries can build bridges to the future, Lin Qi reports.

François-Henri Pinault visited the National Museum of China in Beijing for "memory reviving" on Friday.

There, the chairman and chief executive officer of the French luxury group, Kering, saw the rat and rabbit bronze heads, two of the 12 zodiac animal sculptures that had been looted from Beijing's Old Summer Palace.

On June 28, 2013, François-Henri Pinault accompanied his father, François Pinault, founder of Kering, to a ceremony at the National Museum of China, where the family's donation of the two heads was officially unveiled and added to the museum's collection.
