The posthumous homages paid to legendary Hollywood actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Audrey Hepburn, never cease. However, a new exhibition, by Shanghai¬†Calanstar¬†Culture Co. Ltd, manages to be a unique tribute. The two-month exhibition, entitled “Beyond Time” is a creative celebration of Hepburn’s elegance and nobleness, and is now on display in Beijing.

The exhibition, spread over two storeys, is filled with memorabilia and imaginative art. The “time-tunnel” corridor, decorated by mirrors, tinfoil hangings and suspended postcards of Hepburn, is a mesmerizing tribute to both her Hollywood heyday and later humanitarian work. Another piece, consisting of three portraits of the late actress, each made from a single 1,000-meter-long thread are impressive works of technical majesty.

The exhibition also features several replicas, including the Vespa scooter she rode while starring in “Roman Holiday” and her black sleeveless dress from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. These replicas serve to remind us of the iconic movies that continue to fuel her eternal popularity.
