The Palace Museum in Beijing has shared a range of photos of its collection of crab-themed relics on micro blog Sina Weibo in celebration of the crab season. Autumn is the best season to eat hairy crabs, as they are most fertile and tasty at this time of the year. If you are not able to eat the appetizing crab right now, why not take a look at the crab-themed relics in the Forbidden City first?
