1. Turin: Museum of Eastern Art Guided Visit with Ticket
The guided tour of the Mao is divided into two distinct routes. The first examines the works conserved in the China and Japan Galleries: the tour starts with the art objects of ancient China, characterised by Neolithic pottery, ritual bronzes, lacquers and terracottas - dating from the Neolithic period to the 10th century Ad - and continues in the evocative gallery dedicated to Japan, which presents wooden statues of Buddhist inspiration, exceptional screens, samurai armour and paintings on vertical scrolls and polychrome woodcuts known as ukiyo-e, 'images of the floating world'. The second itinerary tackles the other three Galleries. The tour starts with Indian art, with Buddhist and Hindu statuary of varying date, and continues through South East Asia. In the gallery dedicated to the Himalayan Region, works of Tibetan Buddhist art range from wood and metal sculptures to tempera paintings and precious carved and painted wooden covers. The tour ends in the Gallery of the Islamic Countries of Asia, featuring a rich collection of pottery and tiles and a valuable collection of bronzes, manuscripts and fine textiles.
