Regarding Meta gallery
The Meta Gallery is the XANA Metaverses flagship exhibition for NFT Art. The Meta Gallery is also one of the very first virtual exhibitions ever made for NFT Art within the Metaverse. The meta gallery has some unique features that are only possible for NFT displays in the Metaverse, and these features are not possible for any physical art exhibition. When you look at the animated works up close, you can also see the dynamic movements.
The Meta gallery has a total of 50 NFT works on display in the venue at any given time, but more NFTs can be and will be put up on display in the future. Once NFTs are sold and as more unique as well as artistic NFTs are created the Meta gallery will be updated to represent the latest/best NFTs available on the XANA Metaverse. There are many vividly colored works, many of which are a delight to the viewer lined up in the exhibition hall.
