Asia and Europe form one giant continent, Eurasia, with an endless variation of landscapes, climates, fauna and flora, as well as a wide range of peoples and cultures. Asians and Europeans have been connected with each other for thousands of years. Two cultural factors seem to have linked and influenced the peoples of East and West for thousands of years, Trade and Faith. The book brings together for the first time a selection of 350 art objects from the cultural heritage of 16 Asian countries: Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Specialist in different fields will largely inform the reader with new information.
